Chef Michel Nischan makes us happy and is someone that we look up to in so many ways. He worked with Paul Newman to create the legendary Dressing Room in Westport that was one of Connecticut’s first farm-to-table restaurants. His cooking and approach to food helped to show that local was not only better for the community, but could also taste better. Along with his love of all things local came a movement that would soon become the major focus of his life: sustainability.
You’ve probably been there. You got that shiny new bike, mom or dad took off the training wheels, and then it was your time. Your time to prove to yourself and the world that you could do it…you could actually bike. Maybe you wobbled, maybe you fell, but you straightened yourself and you got back on and you did it. The wind whipped through your hair and you raced around the neighborhood: finally, you were biking. Not to take away from your bright shining moment, but when was the last time you took that bike out on a 400 mile journey through New England? Umm, yeah.
Well, for Glenn Charles, a world traveler, adventurer, and internationally recognized photographer, the trip isn’t too daunting. On September 11 from 11-12:30, he will start his solo journey at McLevy Green in Bridgeport, travel through CT, RI, MA, and NH, then will end up at Deering Park Farmers’ Market in Portland, ME on 9/27. His trip, Farm to Table Cycle: A Journey for Change, is a 400 mile trek that Glenn is making with the support of Wholesome Wave. Along the way, he will be stopping at various places in order to highlight local food systems and bring awareness to how important every individual piece is: from farms, to markets, to schools, to pantries, to restaurants, and even to fisheries.
