Tracey Medeiros, 42, is a native of East Freetown, but when her husband’s airline job transported the family to Vermont nine years ago, she fell in love with the local food culture. Finding herself writing a column for two area newspapers, she began collecting recipes and interviews for her first book, “Dishing Up Vermont.” This week, she released the follow-up, “The Vermont Farm Table Cookbook: 150 Home-Grown Recipes From the Green Mountain State,” which highlights new farms and food producers, while giving more attention to seafood and distilleries. After allowing her subjects to nominate worthy local charities, the author will be donating a portion of the proceeds from this book to the Vermont Food Bank.
