Sure, it’s a promotional piece for Whole Foods.
But it’s still interesting to listen to Elly Truesdell, the green-ish food chain (with an outpost in Westport) describe her job.
As a “local forager” in the Northeast, her job is to eat her way through communities, meet local artisans and growers, hear their stories, and help bring their products to market.
Country farms, urban bakeries — they’re all part of her territories.
And — making a brief cameo on this YouTube video about Elly — is Christie’s Country Store.
Our forager doesn’t say what exciting stuff she discovered at the Cross Highway hot spot.
I guess that’s part of the mystery of her job.
