By Paul Sloth June 6, 2012

Altfrid Krusenbaum watches the skies from his farm in rural Walworth County and crosses his fingers. His family’s livelihood depends on the weather.

Week 50 - Inspiration Comes In Many Forms

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert April 11, 2011

The inspiration I drew upon this week was a recipe we published from local chef Jan Kelly from the restaurant Meritage. We gave Jan a challenge of one ingredient that she needed to design a meal around, and that was kimchi. Jan of course even made the kimchi from scratch, so I figured, why don’t I try?
