Kim Butterfield is a southwest Virginia native and fan of all things delicious. When she’s not writing about food, she enjoys cooking for her family and friends and honing her amateur green thumb in the backyard vegetable patch. She has spent time working in food-related non-profits, addressing everything from hunger to health care. She now spends most days educating community members on healthy eating, cooking skills, and improving overall wellness. Outside of food, she loves to travel (with a particular affinity for the Mediterranean) and spend time with her husband and baby daughter.
