Virginia based food writer, Tim Vidra, authors the blog E.A.T. where he advocates the principles behind supporting a sustainable food system. Tim's mission is in sharing his passion for the preparation and enjoyment of food in a way that everyone from beginners to long time foodies can get involved in. His ties to food are deep rooted — he fondly recalls his Hungarian grandmother citing "If you don't kill it, pluck it or grow it, I'm not eating it" as he spent hours with her in their backyard garden. Now living in the city, Tim tries to maintain these basic principles as he tackles building his own lush urban garden. His recipes and advice have been featured across food publications and he's led series' of cooking demos and classes throughout the Richmond area.
