An "abundance" of talent at Nuit Blanche

We are delighted to feature two artists on Thursday November 12th from 5-8pm as we kick off this month's "Home for the Holidays" market.  We would like to introduce David Curtis of Whisper Hollow Farm. When we first met David, I knew he would be a perfect fit for our November market where the pairing of family  and  delicious food represent much of what Thanksgiving means to many of us. I have asked David to share his story with our customers...

     

 Whisper Hollow Farm -preserving the best of summer's bounty- sprouted from the desire for home grown food free of commercial chemicals and modified plant species, and grew into a small enterprise producing preserved products for discerning clients.
      Our repertoire of summer’s best includes Rhubarb to Raspberry, Currant to Cranberry, Strawberries, Peaches, and a whole lot more. All put together in classical or creative jams, jellies, relishes, salsas, preserves, and chutneys. Handmade in small batches, all products we sell are free of agricultural chemicals, non GMO, gluten free, and use only cane sugar. I make these to eat myself and share with family and friends.
     I am David Curtis, from Whisper Hollow. Was born and raised on a dairy farm in southern Wisconsin. It was hard work and long hours. What I remember most fondly though, was the fresh food. From real milk, home churned butter, fresh eggs and vegies, life was good. I grew up, grew away and spent 25 years living urban life in Boston. I had spent six months in Paris in college, so I had developed a taste for good food. In Boston I was able to be a chef, pastry chef, server, and manager of several nice high quality restaurants and catering companies. My taste for good food only increased and developed into becoming the need to know where my food comes from and how it is prepared.
      Now back in Wisconsin, I’ve come to enjoy growing as well as preserving the beautiful jewels of summer. Luckily their bounty is such that I have much to share. Look for us at the Sunday Summer Market on the square in Baraboo, the Poynette/Lake Wisconsin farmer’s market, and other select venues including: “Confectionique”, the unique and charming Boutique de Paris at the airport in Middleton. Join us for their Holiday open house on Thursday, November 12. Then I’m going back to Paris……

Thursday night will be the perfect opportunity for you to purchase the best in homemade preserves! Merci David for taking to time to join in for Nuit Blanche!

  1. It's really hard and mostly expensive to get organic food there but I'm so glad you're providing that. French cuisine is truly divine and even though you open for a little while, I'm sure it must be worth the wait.
