Why is it important for you to know where your food comes from?
As someone who grew up on a cattle farm in Montana, I understand first hand how important it is to know the source of your meat. Crowd Cow allows me to do this on a scale that works best for my New York City lifestyle.
Who inspires you?

What is your most memorable meal?
A couple years ago, I dined at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. The restaurant is set on a beautiful farm, where every part of your meal is sourced. We experienced some of our courses in the kitchen, where we got to see the staff work their magic. Throughout the meal, we must've tried over 30 dishes. It was a memorable experience to say the least!
What’s your favorite meat dish or meat preparation? Do you have a recipe you would like to share with us?
Such a tough question... I have so many! I love pulled pork, a nice meaty ragu over pasta or pretty much anything on the grill, but you simply can't beat a good quality steak with salt & pepper cooked to perfect medium rare.
What is on your bucket list?
The whole world is my bucket list! I've been to 23 countries, but there's so much more to see. Cuba, Morocco & Iceland are all places I'd like to visit soon.
Vanilla or chocolate?
Is cheese an option? (not a sweets girl, haha)
What would be your last meal on earth?
A carne asada burrito from pretty much any taco shop in San Diego.
What's the one thing you won't eat?
I cannot stand bell peppers. The smell, taste, texture... don't get me started! I will eat any spicy pepper out there but don't bring a bell pepper near me.
