Carol Borchardt is a life-long passionate cook whose background in the culinary arts began with instruction from her mother, a prize-winning cook who developed original recipes while feeding their large family. The farm-to-table, free-range and wild-caught concepts so important today aren't new to Carol--that was her family's way of life on their picturesque central Wisconsin farm. Carol loves to create original recipes just as her mother did. Five of her original recipes are in The Fresh Market and Friends 25th Anniversary Cookbook. Her column “Dinner For Two,” which includes a recipe and her photography appears on a biweekly basis in The Commercial Appeal’s Food Section . She shares many more creative recipes at her blog, A Cookbook Obsession.
