Interesting Islanders

Recently a friend of mine was taking to me about Fete MV. I had not heard of it before, and that’s because this amazing new Island business is new to the food scene. What you may ask? Doesn’t Fete mean party in French? It sure does, and if you know founder and food maker, Leslie […]

From writing about what was new with this year’s Local Wild Food Challenge, I was excited to go and experience the event. And I was not disappointed. This year, I tried a new approach. Instead of going right when the LWFC opened its “gates,” I went with my family around 1:30 p.m. My reasoning for […]

Sit. Chat. Chew. is the new mission of Park Corner Food Bar in Oak Bluffs. Note the “bistro” part is gone too. A lot has changed with the small corner bar/dining spot, and I was happy with what’s new. You’ve probably wondered why in all my blogs, I have never mentioned Park Corner. A few […]

Can you believe it? The Martha’s Vineyard Food & Wine Festival is celebrating its tenth year! And you better believe it’s going to be even more amazing than ever, with more events, guest chefs, and more. If I were footloose and fancy free or on a girl’s weekend, this would be my dream itinerary. However, in […]

I have known Nina Carter Hitchen for a number of years from all sorts of things. This amazing mom of 6-year-old twins has slowly and consciously been evolving towards a Zero Waste lifestyle. I always get to see snips of this process, amazing pics on instagram, inspiring snack containers at soccer, but recently I learned […]
