Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We have a growing hunger to know where our food comes from. In our increasingly corporate world, we are looking to get back in touch with our roots to the land. American Artisanal feeds this hunger as no book has before.

The book celebrates eighteen of Americas leading food artisans-from Wood Prairie Farms potatoes in Maine to L. L. Lanier Honey in Florida, from Reeds Ginger Brew in California to Earthy Delights mushrooms in Michigan. These are folks who are returning to the basics of sustainable, small-scale, or just plain high quality production. Food is a second career for many of these producers, who decided to drop out of the office rat race and pursue their real passion, literally in the field. In their inspirational stories we also can see the emergence of a true national cuisine. Also, woven throughout each chapter is the engaging history behind our foods-their natural origins and long journeys to cultivation. Recipes and ordering information are provided so you can enjoy these culinary delights at home.
