Our challenge is to focus intently on a few signature recommendations through photography  and the interview process.

BERKSHIRE FOOD + TRAVEL is as much about people as it is about place ... it's based on intimate portraits of individuals and the work that they do. Our intent is to profile the unique character of people connected to the landscape in the Berkshire region. We're inspired by Sim van der Ryn, a Dutch architect who states:


"The heart of ecological design is not efficiency or sustainability. It is the embodiment of animating spirit, the soul of the living world, as embodied in each of us waiting to be reborn and expressed in what we design."


The 'animating spirit' is alive and well in this region, and our goal - the goal of all our contributors - is to lead you to places where you'll find remarkable people who manifest that creative energy.
