About The Accidental Locavore – Anne Maxfield
Anne Maxfield was brought up in the early days of Julia Child, but back then what she really thrived on was the bounty of prepared foods. Onion rings in a can, on top of macaroni and cheese from a box, with those cute Vienna franks (also from a can), and there was a great dinner! Parents going out? Frozen pot pies, or even better, a TV dinner…bliss. Why whole grains and fresh vegetables, when there were canned or frozen foods?
Fast forward to a new century.
Anne Maxfield is a multi-talented serial entrepreneur. Her vision for the Accidental Locavore is to take the mystery out of farmer’s markets, and show you how she cooks with what’s local and fresh. With recipes, videos and a sense of humor, see how easy it is to take advantage of the best of farmers’ markets.
Twenty years ago, Anne Maxfield co-founded Project-Solvers, Inc, to provide freelance talent to the apparel industry. It was acquired by Select Staffing in 2005. Anne’s business model to provide free-agent talent to leading designers, manufacturers and retailers in the apparel and accessories industries made Project Solvers, Inc. the premier “creative outsourcing solution” for those industries, and created a $20 million dollar industry. Another first for Anne was the creation of www.projectsolvers.com one of the earliest web sites created to provide information about jobs and fashion industry trends on the Internet.
