Eat Locally

A gorgeous full-color celebration of America's local food heroes and traditions, Edible is for anyone who cares about delicious, safe, sustainable food being cultivated and created every day by people in our own communities. The book offers engaging, inspiring profiles of farmers, artisans, chefs, and organizations that are making a difference, and shares eighty seasonal recipes that highlight the very best local foods across the country.

"The Edible magazines are at the forefront of today's food revolution, celebrating the work of local farmers and food artisans and inspiring us to get involved. Edible tells terrific stories about the making of delicious food, but it's really about American democracy and sustainable community food systems. Read this book and join the movement!"
—Marion Nestle, Professor of Food Studies, New York University, and author of What to Eat

"Since the blossoming of the Edible magazines, I've been dying to know what's going on in other communities. This book gives us a taste of each place and a chance to meet some of the growers, artisans, cooks, and adventurous eaters around the country. And where else could you find a recipe for Kudzu Quiche? It is a simply beautiful work."
—Deborah Madison, author of Local Flavors
