I woke up this morning and the sun was shimmering on the evening's frost which blankets the meadow in front of our house. Today is a good day. I began making coffee and getting ready to see what was going on in the food world(Wednesday is paper day, digital in our case) As I sat down to begin reading the phone rang and the words "did you see" started the conversation. As it turns out, The New York Times did a well deserved piece on Diane St Clair, her incredible cows and work ethic. Diane, for those who do not know, makes Farmstead butter from scratch and with an undying love of quality. That is the key. Diane should get more attention and press. Every guest that comes through our doors gains an intimate knowledge of Diane, the cows and the work she puts into providing us the worlds best butter. Her picture with three of the cows resides in our kitchen for all to see. View this photo Sometimes, it even parades around the dining room. Without our relationship with Diane, we would merely be serving butter on the table. Instead, our guests get an improved and inspired knowledge of ingredients. At the end of the day that is what is so incredibly special. Diane did not set out to be famous, she set out to be perfect, and we are lucky enough to be able to share her gifts.
