Ms. Sparks arrived as a private chef on Martha's Vineyard in the summer of 2019, having just published her first cookbook, Cooking for Conservation, Tchad: A gastronomic safari - inspired by her time working as a chef and culinary arts trainer in National Parks in Africa. With her next cookbook in mind, and knew soon after arriving that it would be based on her Island experiences. She became enthralled by the vibrant local farming community and the shared ethos amongst its members. The book soon evolved into a journey Ms. Sparks set out on to meet farmers and members of the community, with recipes and stories paying homage to them through the words in her book.
