Onward to St. Genevieve!

Thursday I leave for St. Genevieve to do the next set of interviews for Savor Missouri, a set of four books focusing on the regional foods and wines of Missouri. The first region is the River Hills of our great state:  Hermann east, skirting St. Louis to the south, and down the Mississippi to Farmington.

The focus on the regional foods and wine of Missouri is fascinating, mostly because the people involved are passionate about what they do and the products they make. Can’t wait to meet the dairy and meat producers, the vegetable growers, Missouri milled flour makers, and winery owners.
