Much of Edible is almost a travelogue to U.S. sustainable staycations. U.S. and a bit of Canada: Hello, Granville Island, Vancouver! It's fun to read about your own area and dream of future visits away. In the meanwhile, Edible is packed with rustic and toothsome recipes to try at home. Admittedly, some recipes are stretching it in terms of what ingredients they identify as "sustainable" and "local," but they all sound tasty anyway. Purists can always make local substitutions. And kudzu? I had no idea it was edible. Eating invasive plants may not be the epitome of sustainable, but kudzu quiche for dinner works for me!

Synopsis:

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

Eileen Duncan, May 4, 2010 (view all comments by Eileen Duncan)
Since the Edible Communities magazines first sprouted in various locations, I was wishing I could subscribe to all not only for myself but to share with schools and community members in Los Angeles. As a volunteer school/community master gardener and someone who worked at restaurants growing up and in recent years at a culinary schools, I purchased, saw,tasted and shared first hand local fresh foods. I grew to love my local farmers markets and took family,friends and students from local schools to visit. With school gardens, we have a front row seat to the excitement of young school children and teens growing their own fresh vegetables and making "Stone Soup" and other dishes with what they themselves have planted, watered and tenderly cared for. They also share their harvest with local food pantries and so learn another aspect of community. I also recognize the importance of healthy choices as a pediatric RN taking care of neonates to young adults. We must make changes toward fresh and local for the future health of our children and families.
This book gives you a feast for eyes through the gorgeous photos, a feast for your hunger through the excellent recipes and food for your soul with stories to inspire your own efforts in getting your hands in the garden, feeding family and friends, supporting local farmers and those chefs and restaurants that believe in fresh and local. Thank you for giving us a taste of the various edible communities!

And Thank You Powell's for featuring this wonderful publication- you are one of my favorite book stores and one I frequented when my daughter was attending college in Portland and later when you came online....
