Farm to Table with Ivy Manning



Preparing health-minded, locally based meals for my family is a passion and I have a ton of cookbooks to select from (confession… I have more recipe books than my husband has medical books!). The author of one of my all-time favorites is Ivy Manning…

Considered a pioneer in farm to fork cooking, Ivy has a total of 5 cookbooks to her name and is a recipe developer based in Portland Oregon. It was shortly after I started Farm to Fork Hawaii and had my first event that a friend gifted me “The Farm to Table Cookbook: The Art of Eating Locally” by Ivy Manning, to celebrate the milestone.

As I write this blog, I’m reflecting on my own growth in the farm to fork community and thinking about my dear friend who marked a fun early accomplishment with an inspiring gift that I use to this day! On the off chance you haven’t come across her work, I’m ecstatic to introduce Ivy Manning to you in this summit and showcase her in a podcast.

It was such a pleasure to interview Ivy! She has an abundant vegetable garden and extensive knowledge of foods which she exploits by capitalizing on the nuances of flavors. Her expertise is highly sought and Ivy regularly contributes to the national magazines Cooking Light, Eating Well, and Fine Cooking.
