I'm a big fan of: Food Renegade Cheeseslave Kelly the Kitchen Kop Girl in an Apron Affairs of Living
I had a publisher approach me about writing a book for them, and I'm wondering if I should still hire a literary agent to negotiate a potential deal even though the work of acquiring an interested publisher is already done?

No - but organic animal foods are often factory farmed. The difference really amounts to the feed. Also - they have this law in Colorado and are requiring it of EVERY single farmer selling ANY eggs outside the farm. So if you ever sell even 1 dozen backyard...
I use this for my still shots: http://cgi.ebay.com/24-Photo-Studio-...tem3cad53e970/. WITHOUT the supplemental lighting, shooting by a window. And I use these for my videos: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-SOFTBOX-PHOT...item563ca4c52b
This morning I had a scramble with pastured eggs, spinach, feta and tomato, warm milk with a touch of honey and chorizo. Yesterday was a sunny-side up egg over roast beef hash. We also eat a lot of plain yogurt with fruit and nuts and occasionally soaked oatmeal, baked oatmeal with dried fruit or sourdough french toast if we want a real treat.
Brownies are fairly new on the scene, but I use coconut oil in those. There's a chart somewhere - I can't find it - detailing the fats consumed in 1900. Butter, lard and olive oil were big on the list and tallow too followed by the tropical oils if I recall correctly.
In our kitchen I use mostly raw, unfiltered honey because it is available locally. I occasionally use molasses, maple syrup or rapadura/sucanat. You have to be careful with any sugars, though. We're really not supposed to eat any of it regularly, let alone the refined stuff.

Despite its...
Liz - You can make a killer custard with egg yolks, cream and about 3 - 4 tablespoons molasses. You can even use less molasses by mixing in pumpkin puree. Also I make an apple souffle that only contains about 2 T molasses.

So saying 'oh, but some foie grass/veal is ok' is a bit disingeneous. Maybe it exists. But not as it is currently thought...
