I actually spent time with him two days in a row, but I'll tell you more about that in a different post! I've watched him on tv since I was little! For those of you who don't know who Bill Kurtis is, he's a famous journalist whose career began in the 1960's. He's also a director, news anchor, producer, narrator and television host. He's had a long and very courageous career. For example, Bill covered the Vietnam war protests in the late 60's right there in the streets with everybody else. His intelligence and perseverance have proven to be an important influence in our country. So... what is he doing these days, you ask? He's the owner of:
Tallgrass Beef is quite the wonderful company. They raise cattle the way it should be - naturally! The eat 100% grass and that is IT. When I heard that, I thought it made complete sense.

I had a bunch of questions for Bill about Tallgrass Beef, so I was excited (and a little nervous) to sit down with him. He's just as nice and laid back as you think he would be. He was a pleasure to interview and seems like such a great guy/
There is some really interesting stuff I learned during the interview such as the fact that "grass fed" doesn't mean it's being fed 100% grass! Check out the video to find out how to avoid the fake grass fed stuff!
Tallgrass Beef's hot dogs will be officially "out there" as of Mother's Day. Make sure to email your grocery store and tell them you want them to carry it. If they hear from enough people, they will stock it!
I tried the hot dogs myself at the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo and they were surprisingly tasty! I've eaten a couple of them plain lately and they really are good. Stay tuned because I'm going to have some recipes coming your way! ;-)
