Martha Stamps (www.marthastampscatering.com) is a native Nashvillian who grew up at her parent’s home near Radnor Lake and graduated from Harpeth Hall.  Stamps’ education about food and land began when she was a child.  After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, Stamps returned to Nashville and with determination began her slow-food crusade.  Stamps began dealing directly with farmers and doing outreach and education, providing an entryway for everyday Nashvillians to begin asking questions about what they were eating and where it was coming from.  Stamps’ progressive efforts in the early 1990s make her a way-out-front early adopter of now-ubiquitous ideas, such as eating organic, sustainable growth, buying local, connecting directly to farmers via CSAs and co-ops, and from-scratch cooking.  Her weekly A Place at The Table dinner and movie/lecture series which combines delicious food and thought began in 2009.  (Source: “Stamps of Approval”, by Joe Nolan, Local Table)
