Cook-writer-farmer Susie Middleton gets to do what she loves every day. The author of Fast, Fresh & Green and The Fresh & Green Table has just written her third book, Fresh From the Farm: A Year of Recipes and Stories, about cooking, growing, and living on a little farm on the island of Martha's Vineyard. A farm stand, a farm dog, 500 chickens, a hoop house, and a whole lot of vegetables make days on the farm long and tiring but sweet and fulfilling at the same time. Mealtime is pretty swell, too. (Fresh from the Farm has 125 delicious seasonal recipes for everything from appetizers to dessert, in addition to loads of color photos, stories, and four farm designs.)
Susie is the former chief editor and current editor at large for Fine Cooking magazine and has had her (big) toe in the publishing waters since she published her first poem in sixth grade. In addition to blogging at sixburnersue.com, she writes for national and regional magazines and occasionally for the Huffington Post. She is eternally grateful for an amazing education: Holton Arms School, Duke University, NYU Publishing Institute, The Institute of Culinary Education, Martha's Vineyard university.
