Page Proofs

The page proofs arrived for the cheese book. The cover looks fantastic! We found one error that needs to be fixed and ought to have that resolved tomorrow so we can send them back. Scary-exciting to have it leave our hands.

Florida Food Summit

The Florida Food Summit has been a great event. Last evening we attended a lecture and discussion led by Michael Dimmick, the Executive Director of the Roots of Change Fund and former president of Slow Food USA.

Our presentation this morning went really well. We had a wonderfully engaged group of participants, including John and Nancy Mims who are long-time dairy farmers in nearby Hawthorne. They have just started producing cheese on their farm. The first of their cheeses will be ready to sell in a month. Stephanie Hamblen was there. She is the writer of Hogtown Homegrown blog and newsletter. And lots of other interesting folks. David Green from Winter Park Dairy talked about his cheesemaking. Dan Eddy and Robbie Sipes talked about their cheese retailing. And we talked about what we learned in our cheese research. What a nice way to spend a morning!
