New food contributor to IF blog

IdeaFestival stalwart and food writer David Mudd has graciously agreed to contribute posts to IFblog.

David is a Louisville native who now lives on a small farm outside of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, where he’s suddenly raising fainting goats. He writes about food, agriculture, and public policy and has been published in the Washington Post, City Magazine, Rodale’s New Farm Magazine, and the USDA’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education project’s Farmer Profile series. He was editor of a public issues magazine called the Kentucky Journal. He has a professional culinary degree from L’ Academie De Cuisine, in Washington, D.C, and has cooked at several celebrated Washington restaurants. He has also helped organize the IdeaFestival’s Taste of Innovation event for three years now, and last year launched a closing dinner event for the Festival. That dinner was staged at Smith-Berry Vineyards near Louisville, with nearly all elements of the meal produced in the region and served outside at a well-appointed table among the grapevines. He’s hoping to top that experience this year.

All of David's posts will be filed under "IFeed" on the blog. Welcome David!
