This is celebrity farmer Ray Bradley of Bradley Farm, one of the vendors at my local farmer's market, on the Upper West side, every friday morning. It is my weekly appointment, when I am in the city and I love it! It's like being at home in Roma, where everybody knows you, chats with you and shares recipes. Only that in New York you deal with real stars. Ray, for example, was featured twice in the NYTimes last year and once already this year. Not only he didn't become arrogant, after all this buzz...he is the dearest man. Today, I didn't have any money, shopped at his table for 15 dollars. He said, don't worry at all, you'll pay me next time. I felt right at home.
