Hi, I'm David P. Offutt, also known as "The Gastronomic Gardener.”  I've lived outside Chicago for almost 40 years.

I have a passion for gardening and for cooking. Am I formally trained? No, my knowledge and skill are mostly self-taught.

After years of developing my perennial garden which blooms from first thaw through first frost, I have turned my attention towards vegetable gardening and food production. This interest combines perfectly with my obsession for cooking and eating.

My philosophy of “get the best ingredients you can, and prepare them simply,” has delighted friends, neighbors and guests for many years.

Recently I've has chosen to share what I have learned with the community, to educate, be educated, excite, and encourage cooks and gardeners alike across all skill levels.

Welcome to the Gastronomic Gardener!
