Four Seasons of Chino Farm

1374 Four Seasons of Chino Farm
Clouds gather over recently planted fields on the Chino family farm in Rancho Santa Fe, California March 7, 2013. The gravitational pull of Chino Farm is legendary. Since they don’t ship, everyone – whether a top chef or a traveling foodie or a local resident – comes to the farm stand, simply called “Vegetable Shop”, on a dusty corner of this affluent San Diego County town, hemmed in by sprawling housing estates. Long before farmers’ markets and heirloom vegetables popped up across the country, Tom Chino’s parents bought the 45-acre (18.2-hectare) farm after World War Two and forged their independence from wholesalers and supermarkets, setting their prices and cultivating a diverse offering of crops.

And now steeplechase enthusiasts can add another event to the annuls of great sporting occasions, namely the Stuttgart rabbit show jumping.

1305 Sunny Side Egg Art by Anne Widya
A creative mother has come up with a novel way of making sure her children eat their breakfasts – by using eggs to make works of art. Sculpted into a variety of extraordinary designs, culinary genius, Anne Widya, uses sunny side up eggs to make sure her children’s plates are always cleared. Made using a cookie cutter and sushi wrap, the mother-of-four gets her creative juices flowing by serving eggs in an assortment of shapes from smiling pigs to ice cream sundaes.
