When Tim makes Italian-style green beans, he thinks of his grandma Emily, a beautiful Italian woman with short white hair and smiling blue eyes, who still explains recipes with a flick of her wrist and an “Oh, it’s so simple!” When I make Italian-style green beans, I think of Tim, the man who brought them, along with avocados and perfect grilled cheese sandwiches and raw milk bought straight from the farmer, into my life three years ago.

Turns out, for us, today is more than the first day of February. Today is the first day of our email newsletter, something we’ve hardly hinted at here on the blog before but that’s been in the works since the end of last year. A few of you noticed that we’ve had a signup button on the blog since December, and you’ve already subscribed. Hooray! The rest of you may or may not have any idea what I’m talking about. For that reason, we thought we’d launch the first issue not only by sending it to our charter subscribers’ inboxes, but also by posting the bulk of its content here. Going forward, this content will be strictly via email—there’s a signup button in the sidebar. If you like what you see, we hope you’ll subscribe.
And let us know if you have questions! Happy Friday! Happy February! Happy newsletter!
