Todd Mills speaks of the American food system with sophistication, knowledge and passion, a passion which led him to co-found pop-up restaurant Granary Grill with friend and business partner Dan Kurth. A strong interest in social justice led him to a series of non-profits, including Columbus's Local Matters. There he learned about some of the problems in the American food system that make it far too difficult for people to get their hands on good food. Eventually, he realized that the problems he perceived might be best adressed through a business. He is currently working towards an MBA at the Ohio State University to take some of his solutions further. In the meantime, Granary Grill, his and Kurth's pop-up restaurant at the Hills Market in Worthington, is his way of providing good delicious food to the people of Columbus. Every Tuesday this summer, he and Kurth serve lunch 11:00-2:00pm outside the store. Bowls are filled with grains and vegetables and optional meat, marrying the concept of delicious and healthy.

Claire Paniccia: What exactly is a pop-up restaurant?

Todd Mills: At the Hills, you present them with concept, and if they think the food is a good fit and that you are going to be reliable provider, then they'll give you a shot to test it out. It's basically a competitive process.

So I did this rather than doing a food truck, which is a low upfront investment, but different from what I want to do. Hills shoppers were not my original target audience, but it's a chance to test my cooking chops and also dive into running a business.

A relative newcomer to Ohio, Kit Yoon brings her perspective as a licensed acupuncturist and reflexologist trained in traditional Chinese medicine. Kit has had articles featured in Edible Columbus and Edible Boston, as well as blog post contributions to our website (natural Easter egg dyes, anyone?).

Leah Wolf: Can you tell us a little about what you do?

Kit Yoon: I am an acupuncturist by profession. For the last two years, since we moved to Columbus, I have been practicing at Urban Acupuncture Center, a community acupuncture clinic in Clintonville. Besides acupuncture, I have also done some freelance writing and photography. But mostly, I am a mother to two lovely children, and a wife to a wonderful man.


LW: What led you to start writing?

KY: Since high school, I have always kept a journal. I found it a good way to end the day; reflect back on what happened that day and also to be in touch with myself during those few moments.

As for freelance writing, it started in 2007 when I spent a year back in the Boston area with my family (where I went to high school and college). At that point, I reconnected with my high school friend who owns an organic vegetable farm. The kids and I spent a great deal on this farm that year. One thing led to another, and I found myself writing about the farm for Edible Boston. More freelance writing and photography followed after that.

Peach Caprese Salad

Written by

At The Seasoned Farmhouse cooking school, we were recently asked to host a special dinner for a group of out of town magazine editors who were visiting Columbus for the first time. I went to work creating a menu that would show off the delicious bounty of ingredients grown here in Central Ohio, most of which were sourced from the Clintonville Farmers Market.

No summer dinner would be complete without a course dedicated to Branstool Orchards' peaches—this Peach Caprese salad was served as our second course. It's easy to make, delicious and unexpected. Enjoy!
