West Marin Food & Farm Tours(2014-07-28)

West Marin Food & Farm Tours 

Host Robin Carpenter was in conversation with Elizabeth Hill who is the owner and operator of West Marin Food & Farm Tours, which has made it possible for folks to explore West Marin’s food, farms and history for the past two years. She’s a certified Natural Chef, a UC Master Gardener, a Stanford graduate, and a credentialed teacher with a Masters degree in Education.  A fascinating discussion about how all of these talents and skills came together in a surprising manner to combine with her passions for food, gardening, education, and travel resulting in her unique culinary tour company of West Marin where she spent much of her childhood exploring and is her heart’s home. What happened around the Gold Rush that wiped out the oysters in SF Bay? How did Marin Cheese Company provide the breakfast of champions to dock workers then? Listen in and find out!
