Heartland Chef Lenny Russo agreed to blog for the Strib on one condition: that we all be nice. In his maiden post, Russo writes, "It is my fervent hope that in agreeing to write this blog that I can foster some spirited yet respectful debate about issues that affect each and everyone of us on a daily basis in both subtle and profound ways."
He concludes, "I would bet that if we could all sit down together over a wonderful meal that we would find more things to bring us together than to divide us." Well said, Chef Russo. We look forward to hearing what you have to say!
