Together, Annie Corrigan and Daniel Orr form an awesome powerhouse of sustainable living knowledge and local food resources and recipes. . . . It's a collaborative effort, featuring recipes and tips from gardeners and chefs who know their field and are ready to share their favorite tips and tricks to help anyone create a better meal, snack, or dessert or take better care of their homestead. * Little Indiana * Informative, insightful, and a delight to browse through from cover to cover... * Midwest Book Review * Her mission is to stay as true as possible to choosing ingredients that are grown close by, picked at their freshest, and prepared in the home kitchen. The book also includes tips for cooking up a hearty compost heap and building te bin where it will reside, how to forage for ramps, and what to do with that bumper crop of tomatoes. . . . Lively interviews and vibrant photographs flesh out this tribute to a great radio show and our vibrant local food culture. * Limestone Post Magazine * Where does this book excel? In offering farming-focused education, whether centered on an ingredient (bone broth, all-natural deer repellent); on a technique (rendering lard, cutting chicken); or on a do-it-yourself foodie project (a healthy compost heap). A good first go-green reference. * BookList *show more
