I'll be the first to admit the angle of the video isn't all that great, but the message is spot on! In this clip, I am shooting the gluten free breeze with Matt Shook, the owner of Juice Land here in Austin, Texas---where gluten free is easy, organic and a way of life that is keenly understood. So when I asked him if he wanted to contribute a recipe to the community cookbook before the camera was rolling, he hugged me and said, "Hell yes I want to contribute!---love the idea! I mean, who doesn't love recipes from when they where kids?"
Be sure to watch it all the way through~Matt very generously shares one of their recipes right on the spot!
I've been a busy bee this week and I'm super excited to share my first in a series of videos of local business owners-- everyone from James Beard Award Winning chef Shawn Cirkiel to my yoga instructor, to gluten free food bloggers and even other gluten free bakers---that have graciously shot videos to show their support and share a little of their culinary lineage to make this project a reality.
The first in this wonderful series is Shelby, the owner of B-Free yoga, where g-free is embraced and vinyasa is flowing. Shelby shared her grandmother's beloved chicken divina recipe for the cookbook, and with a buttermilk biscuit topping, you know it's gonna be a favorite!!!
I'm really feeling the love, so thank you to everyone who took the time to embrace, share and support The Gluten Free Community Cookbook with me this week.
Announced on my facebook page just yesterday, we have a very generous believer in the Blackbird Project who has agreed to match ALL contributions, dollar for dollar, from here on out. And guess what???? He's from Australia!!!!! Let's take this project global---help spread the word today!!!!
