Stepping up to the table


I like to eat.  You name it, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, I love a good meal.  But I wanted to ensure that the forks and knives I use to eat my meals were made by Americans.  Imagine my shock when I discovered that only one company is still making flatware here at home. But what a company!  Sherrill Manufacturing located in Sherrill, NY makes some absolutely beautiful flatware patterns under the Liberty Tabletop brand.  My favorite Liberty Tabletop pattern is the Pinehurst.

35 members of our extended American family are working at Liberty Tabletop making great flatware.  The steel for Liberty’s flatware is made in this country as are most of the products Liberty uses to turn its raw American steel into the most beautiful forks, knives and spoons you can buy.  Alice and Matt Roberts were nice enough to send along a short piece on Liberty that recently appeared on TV in New York.  I urge you to watch it and learn about Liberty, their commitment to making their products in New York and the amazing products Liberty is making that you can buy from their website.  I am absolutely certain that once my Pinehurst order arrives, all the food I eat with it will taste better.  And given my cooking prowess, I need all the help I can get!

I live in Seattle and love telling stories about Americans, the places where they work and the things that they make.
