As we've built up our community here at HandPicked Nation, we have met some truly incredible farmers, ranchers, makers and thinkers in the real food movement. Which prompted the thought, why not share a little more about the real people of real food with our readers?

Welcome to another addition of HandPicked People!

Andrea DiMauro is the Creative Director behind Food Truth, a website (and mobile app) that helps you cook in season no matter your skill level in the kitchen. With recipes ranging from "cinch" to "sensational", you can enjoy what's fresh and peak-season with ease.

We're thrilled to be able to share Andrea's wise words here on HandPicked Nation! Her thoughtful advice is a great reminder about the importance of knowing what you eat, and why
