I'm Kentucky born, but moved to NY over 20 years ago. I started a rooftop garden business and met Christopher Hirsheimer during a shooting of one of my gardens. She was the food editor of Met Home at the time. I fell in love with her that day. One of my greatest accomplishments was to coax Christopher and her wonderful husband Jim to move next door to my farmhouse on the road. I've enjoyed many, many wonderful meals at the Hirsheimers.
