Bones, contact the State Dept. of Agriculture, they may connect you to the county extension agent, but it's a start.
Anneke-- here are a few more ideas.
-director of prepared foods for a specialty food store (better hours and lots of cooking)
-test kitchen director
-associate food editor ( they do more cooking than editors, generally)
-food photographer ( the best ones have a lot of food knowledge)
-digital food photographer (everyone is moving toward digital photography, it combines food, computers, and cameras)
There is a good book titled "Careers for Gourmets and Others Who Relish Food" by Mary Donavan. She includes lots of resources and practical advice.
