Wild Cranberry Syrup

Cranberry Waffles

A little bit about Andy Wade

I’ve been accused of never following a recipe, and well, that’s almost true! Taking an idea and experimenting with it is a thrilling culinary adventure – especially for my victims. You see, I have no formal training in cooking and, while in my mind I can almost taste the flavors I’m about to blend, my imagination is not always up to the task.

But the adventure lives on! My garden is often the palette from which the flavors spring. I like to plant the usual suspects, but I also add new plants every year – new flavors to explore and new colors and textures to the garden. Even the “weeds” are not safe from being plucked and added to a dish (and they’re often more nutritious and delicious as well!)
