Chris Fischer is homegrown, much like the food in his book, The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook, which celebrates seasonal farm- and ocean-to-table fare. He was raised on the island and is a member of his family’s twelfth generation here. He has honed his culinary talents by cooking in some of the world’s leading kitchens in New York and London. Fischer, back on Martha’s Vineyard, serves as farmer and chef at Beetlebung Farm in Chilmark.
The remarkable photographs of Gabriela Herman, a Brooklyn and Vineyard based photographer, grace the cookbook. Herman specializes in travel, food, lifestyle and portrait work around the globe bringing a fresh and vibrant energy. Her work appears frequently in Martha Stewart Living and Condé Nast Traveler, among many other publications.
