So here's a quick update on what we've been up to.
In November, the Austin City Council took action to allow cooking at Farmers Markets. Since then, we've been grilling a variety of our sausages at the HOPE Farmers Market on Sundays. Austin Chronicle food writer Mick Vann stopped by one weekend and had one of our Mortadella Hot Dogs. He said it was the best Hot Dog he'd ever had. No kidding! If you haven't been out to HOPE yet, you're missing a hell of a good time. We're grilling the hot dogs, currywurst and more every week, there are complimentary cocktails, I repeat COMPLIMENTARY COCKTAILS, from Austin Personal Bartenders and a bunch of awesome farmers and vendors.

In other news, that bearded fellow in the picture is Bryan Butler. Bryan has been Austin's neighborhood butcher for the last decade, first at Fresh Plus Grocery and for the last six years at Wheatsville Coop. Late last year he left Wheatsville and joined Salt & Time. I can't tell you how excited I am that Bryan is now part of Salt & Time. Needless to say, Bryan brings with him a ton of experience and shares the same passion that inspired me to start Salt & Time. Please join me in welcoming Bryan.
I have some other things to tell you about, but I think I should save them for another post... Stay tuned.
