Celebrating our favorite #Feeders on Instagram
Instagram is a great way to learn what other people in the food community are up to. These 5 #Feeders cook, eat and live well, to say the least. If you don’t follow them already, you sure should.
The Feeder: @OldBlueRawHoney: Henry Storch. Beekeeping Horseshoeing Oregon Coast Range #OLDBLUERAWHONEY oldbluenaturalresources.com
Why we love @OldBlueRawHoney: Beekeeping is endlessly fascinating. Seeing it through the eyes of Henry Storch and getting his explanations and insight into what’s going on makes it even more captivating. Henry even raises and breeds his own queen bees in an effort to preserve and improve Northwest-adapted honeybee genetics. He’s also a professional farrier and a serious forager and seed saver. Life on the Oregon coast with Henry, his wife Camille (@waywardspark) and their two little ones sure looks incredible- we want to visit!
The Feeder: @beardedwarrior: Joshua Schwartz. Exec.Chef @ Del Dotto Vineyards ….Proud Father of two …Salt of the Earth.. Chaser of Ocean Rainbow Fish….
Why we love @beardedwarrior: Josh is living the dream in the Napa Valley: he’s executive chef at an epic winery with plenty of beautiful product at his fingertips AND he’s a fishing guide on the side, exploring the rivers of Northern California for steelhead and trout. Karl and Jimmy of LET um EAT met Josh when they first moved to California and he’s been a great friend ever since. It’s been amazing to see what he’s built at Del Dotto in the past 8 years: Josh is seriously pushing the envelope as far as a winery’s culinary program goes – check it out.
The Feeder: @Salt_Water_Farm: Salt Water Farm is a cooking school in Lincolnville, Maine & a cafe and market in Rockport, Maine. saltwaterfarm.com
Why we love @Salt_Water_Farm: Coastal Maine farm life – it appears to be as idyllic as it sounds. So you have a couple of choices here: you can follow Salt Water Farm on Instagram (that’s a given) or you can go visit! They offer cooking classes and week long workshops on the farm, often featuring a renowned guest chef, where you can learn to make handmade pastas, pies from scratch and different preserving techniques, just to name a few. Of course every class culminates in a glorious communal feast around a big farm table. Okay, so if a trip to Maine isn’t in your near future, the least you can do is follow @Salt_Water_Farm.
The Feeder: @wildernesshunter: Eric Bartle. OR & NY Chef/Forager/Flyfisherman/Hunter/Gardener Brand Ambassador @stormykromerofficial #coastrangetothecatskills
Why we love @wildernesshunter: From the wilds of Oregon to Upstate New York and a few places in between, Eric gets out there. Photos of wild mushrooms, fresh caught fish and garden veggies not only make you want to tag along on his adventures, but also join him at the dinner table to revel in the final product! Follow Eric and his big red beard for inspiration to get outside and eat wild!
The Feeder: @miette1965: MÅURICE. Musings of a Modern Pastry Luncheonette• Åpent Tues-Sat 10a to 7p• 921 SW Øak St, 97205• Oui Fika! mauricepdx.com
Why we love @miette1965: Picture perfect pastries and French-Scandinavian inspired dishes served in a charming little cafe in downtown Portland. Kristen Murray and her team at MÅURICE have created a little piece heaven on earth (the stark white – yet warm – decor lends itself nicely to that). Following @miette1965 often makes us question why we don’t just go there everyday: we could all use more quiche, oysters, smorbrod and rosé in our lives.
