  2. Good afternoon Shannon,

    I would like to get a physical mailing address for you, the Misterly’s and the photographer of your book “Chefs on the Farm; Recipes and Inspiration fromthe Quillisascut Farm School of the Domestic Arts.” I work for the Washington State Library and I’d like to be able to mail a note to each of you.

    My phone number if you’d like to call is: 360.704.5269 my email is: rcoleman@secstate.wa.gov

    Thank you Shannon for your help with this

  3. Hello! I am interested in your blog, because I’m also “jack-mormon” who grew up in Utah, lives in NYC, and is moving to Edinburgh in three weeks. And I’ve just started to get a taste for wine myself. 🙂 I love your style of writing.

    1. Wow! Good luck! I have lived in Scotland a few different summers and loved it – in fact, I”ll write about a kitchen in Scotland later (like kitchen #18 or something!). Why are you moving? That is super exciting. I got really into my Scottish geneology there and drove around to all the little towns they were from…and, I’m working on a novel that takes place partially in Glasgow. An inspiring place!

  4. Hi Shannon! I love your book “Chefs on the Farm.” The photographs are so spectacular, the recipes and the story of Quillisascut Farm School and how it all began is a treasure to delve into. I am so glad I got to meet you at Darvil’s Bookstore on Orcas Island. Please come visit us at Once In A Blue Moon Farm!!
