"Word of Mouth: Community and Food" (www.wordofmouthmendo.com) was born in the summer of 2016 and the brainchild of publisher, Holly Madrigal. WOM, as we fondly write it short hand, is "Mendocino County's Local Food Magazine". I've had the distinct pleasure of being a part of the magazine from its beginning. I've photographed and written stories about our county's food producers, food crafters, wine and spirits technicians, and shakers and movers in the local food movement. I also spend time distributing the magazine up and down our beautiful coast and hilly, forested inland. Obviously, I'm quite proud of our county, this amazing magazine, the wonderful people who contribute to its success, and my own contributions. Do enjoy this "Taste of Mendocino"!
