KC is the sole proprietor of Four Wall Farm, a micro gourmet mushroom farm in New York's Hudson Valley. When she is not farming, she is in her kitchen, creating new ways to enjoy her beloved mushrooms and turning those dishes into incredible recipes to share with the many patrons of her farmer's market stand. Previously an occupational therapist, roustabout, professor, lifeguard, globetrotter, and hitchhiker, she turns her various experiences and vibrant food memory into unexpected flavors and mush love. KC is blessed with two brilliant children, two furry companions, and a beloved spouse that all support her in her cooking and business ventures. Her oldest daughter has been a guiding light and inspiration for the use of sustainability principles which are an important aspect of Four Wall Farm business practices. This first of hopefully many cookbooks represents a lifelong passion for all things literary and culinary.
