Santa Fe: A Sense of Place In Memory of Billie Frank

Order My Santa Fe Travel Guide

 

On October 12, 2017, Santa Fe lost one of its avid and colorful local ambassadors, Billie Frank. Billie was a travel writer and blogger who in conjunction with her husband Steve Collins wrote and published, “The Santa Fe Traveler,” a blog that was read by many in Santa Fe, in New Mexico and even around the United States. Billie was a concierge at two of Santa Fe’s finest hotels for four years and her background in sales, marketing and customer service were evident throughout  her respected travel blogs.

She had great love for The City Different and in memory of her spirit and literary gifts, we are reposting a blog from March 11, 2017, that showcases that love. Billie’s sense of place in Santa Fe is honored and deeply admired by her friends, colleagues and those who were lucky enough to meet her.

The Flavors of Fall at Santa Fe Farm-to-Table Restaurants

Order My 2017 Santa Fe Travel Guide

 

Autumn in New Mexico brings a bounty of fresh, seasonal foods grown by local farmers that are representative of the region, from the Land of Enchantment’s famous green and red chile to the Native American’s “Three Sisters”—beans, corn and squash that, when grown together, nourish and support each other.

You can savor the flavors of fall at acclaimed farm-to-table restaurants across Santa Fe County, where the focus is on fresh, local ingredients that are delicious and full of wholesome goodness, too.  Some chefs cook with the foods grown at their on-site restaurant farms. Others shop the Santa Fe Farmers Market—one of America’s top farmers markets with more than 150 farmers and producers in northern New Mexico —as well as the Eldorado Farmers Market, Cerrillos Farmers Market and the Pueblo of Pojoaque Farmers Market and crafts markets.  Chefs then blend the freshest of ingredients with imagination and innovation to create mouth-watering fare that keeps diners coming back for more.
