Book News
Chef, cooking instructor, and cookbook author Cotler explains the steps that people can take to localize their eating and thus support farms and farmers in the neighborhood while reducing the pollution and costs of long-distance shipping. Her first step is buying, and she describes farmers' markets, farm stands, u-pick farms, community supported agriculture, buying clubs, and stores. Next comes cooking and eating, which entails storing and preparing local food, and looking for it when dining out. She includes recipes. The final stage is producing local food in the yard and garden, and becoming an advocate. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
