Editor's Note: One of the fears people have about leaving an urban lifestyle for life in a small town is that the gastronome inside each of us will be, well, starved. And while small towns simply don’t have the population to support all the culinary niches, there are still an amazing number of places where a dyed-in-the-wool foodie can satisfy a craving for “good food, well prepared”. Just because a chef is in a small town is no reason to assume that he or she has never worked in the wider world or is without skill, talent and a few tricks up the sleeve.
Betty Sayers, Pam Soreide and NRL Editor Phil Soreide appreciate food – they talk food, read about food, prepare food and for all we know, dream about food. We hope you will enjoy their ramblings.
