You might expect a food epiphany to strike in the kitchen, at the table, maybe in the market. For Sherri Brooks Vinton her 'aha' moment came on the back of a motorcycle. A cross-country tour brought her face-to-face with the negative impacts of industrial agriculture and compelled her to trade in her career as a dot .com executive to begin a quest for food raised with integrity.
Sherri's discussions and workshops on "how to reclaim the food chain" have been offered at a variety of venues across the country. She is honored to have been featured on a number of radio programs including WHYY's "A Chef's Table" and television programs such as "Living Fresh" on Discovery's Health Channel. Sherri is a frequent contributor to Edible Nutmeg. Her monthly newsletter, "Farm Friendly," is a resource of advice and recipes for anyone who wants to join this exciting food movement.
Sherri is a former Governor of Slow Food USA and is a member of Women Chefs and Restaurateurs, the Northeast Organic Farmers Association, International Association of Culinary Professionals, and Chefs Collaborative.
Sherri is currently touring with her new book, Put 'Em Up! which is an eater's guide to preserving the harvest. For more information about Sherri or to sign up for her newsletter, Farm Friendly, visit http://www.sherribrooksvinton.com
