Your Head FlyoverTapan (yeah, that’s me) is working on holiday preparations, which explains the late post this week. Whatever you celebrate—Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice, New Year’s Eve and Day, Festivus—if your plans include gift-giving or eating, why not add a Flyover twist to your festivities? I know I will!
Some ideas—cheese from a Flyover farm! I’ve given cheeses crafted by the talented Matthew Brichford of Jacobs and Brichford Farmstead Cheese1 (from Indiana’s beautiful Whitewater Valley) in the past. Individually wrapped 1-oz. wedges of Newton, Iowa’s Maytag Blue Cheese are going to my parents this year. Gift certificates from a favorite local foods purveyor, such as The Downtown Farm Stand (in Muncie Indiana) or Goose the Market (in Indianapolis) come to mind.
Sweet toothed people on your list? How about a bunch of chocolate bars from Endangered Species Chocolate (based in Indianapolis) or a selection from Madison, Wisconsin’s award-winning Gail Ambrosius Chocolates.
Whatever you are celebrating, Flyover Tapas wishes you the most wonderful holiday(s)!
