Fab Friday: Anne Maxfield, the Accidental Locavore
Each Friday, Simplifying Fabulous! presents Fab Fridays, an up-close-and-personal look at how one of our community members simplifies fabulous in their own life. Is there someone you'd like to see featured? Email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. About Anne Maxfield, the Accidental Locavore was brought up in the early days of Julia Child. But back then, what she really thrived on was the bounty of prepared foods along the lines of "Toss some onion rings-in-a-can on top of boxed macaroni and cheese and add in those cute Vienna franks (also from a can)!" Now there was a great dinner! Why try whole grains and fresh vegetables, when there were cans or frozen foods? Fast forward to a new century: Anne Maxfield’s vision for the Accidental Locavore is to to take the mystery out of farmer’s markets, and show how easy it is to cook with what’s local and fresh. A multi-talented serial entrepreneur, Anne would like to expand her message's reach through apps, a weekly television show, as well as products targeted to making cooking and eating local and fresh, simple and easy.
