Who are you?
I’m Bill Taibe, Chef and Owner, LeFarm & The Whelk.
Why are you a part of the local food community?
I own two restaurants that are working to help grow our local food system. I see a real opportunity in this area to build a strong community centered around food. We have the resources to do it.
Why do you support WFM?
It is the epicenter of our local food movement. I love everything it stands for. Small business, passionate, dedicated hard working people who are rewarded with a forum to show their art.
What’s the freshest thing in your kitchen right now?
Native strawberries from Fort Hill Farm.
If you could become a vegetable, which would you choose?
A bean. I could be eaten fresh, dried, frozen or canned. I would also be a seed of hope for new growth, and my stalk –if allowed–could grow tall into the sky and above the clouds.
