Elizabeth Winslow: Goddess of Cuisine and Culture

Every now and then, the heavens above send down someone who got peppered with a little extra "something special". Someone who seems to have heart, soul, passion, creativity, a great family and most importantly, have it all under control. This would be the case with Elizabeth Winslow.

Who is Elizabeth Winslow, you ask?


She's the co-founder of Austin's own all-local food delivery service featuring the season's best offerings from local farms and food artisans... all while teaching us how to prepare our bushel of veggie pickings with awesome recipes and cooking tips. (I've been receiving my organic loot straight to my doorstep for months now, and it is awesome!) 

And have you heard of...

Well - Elizabeth, along with Currie Pearson (a la Spartan, my favorite go-to gift spot), started this awesome social kinda club, curating local monthly gatherings and periodic adventures abroad focused on explorations of art, food, and design.

Wow. Step aside, P. Terry's and a six-pack, I need some fabulous
Farmhouse Delivery and Martineau & Bird. Pronto.

Elizabeth is also trained chef, a brilliant entrepreneur, steadfast mover and shaker, loving wife and the proud mama of two beautiful children - Tess and Liam. 

Oh - she's also drop dead gorgeous.
