Rachel developed an appreciation for eating locally while growing up on a ranch in Oregon, and today frequents both farms and farmers' markets in search of fresh food treasures. An environmental consultant by day, she spends her evenings cooking and baking, much to the delight of her husband's coworkers. In addition, Rachel enjoys hiking, traveling, coffee shops, artisan chocolate, and books. As a new mom to baby Annabel, one of Rachel's future hobbies will be training her daughter to have an adventurous palate!
