A Talula's Taste of the Season to Come

I am not sure about you, but I am about to go a little stir crazy.

Although this winter weather has been dramatic and beautiful, I am more than ready for the snow to melt, the ground to thaw, and get started with spring clean up and growing. Last evening before the snow really hit, I was able to get to Kennett Square and enjoy the delicious taste of Vermont event at Talula's table. What made the evening so special, beside the all the tasty treats, was the opportunity to hang out with a community of folks passionate about food, agriculture, and community. The crowd was full of local cheesemakers, farmers, foodies, farmers market fans, and new friends from the recent pasa conference. Talula's has a brand new blog you can click here and see more pictures from this spirited event.

Those two short hours inspired an excitement for the season to come, an eagerness to connect with customers and friends again at the Kennett Square Farmers Market, and a thankfulness that a place like Talula's exists in our area. Lucky for all of us, the Mugs and Music event coming up on March 13th at the Kennett Flash will provide a similar opportunity to enjoy the camaraderie of food and community.

Kennett Square really does possesses a unique spirit that I feel so blessed to be a part of--the perfect remedy for the winter blues. The breadth of the community extends far beyond the boarders of the borough, as illustrated by the make up of the crowd last night. As I drove home I was reminded of another fantastic event that involved Talula's along with Victory Brewing Company (I will post more about Victory in the very near future)--the Sustainable Feast, a fundraiser for the Stroud Water Research Center. This amazing all local multi-course dinner took place last June, literally out in the middle of my growing fields. Just thinking about this event warms my heart. I have posted a bunch of photos below-a litte reprieve from the winter landscape-a taste of the season to come and the magic of Talula's Table. Enjoy.
