“From produce to poultry to policy, The Chesapeake Table takes you on a thoroughly delicious and instructive journey through one of America’s greatest and most diverse food sheds. Fact-packed and certified to satisfy, this book has everything you’ll ever need to eat local and to eat like a local.”

Mark Winne, author of Stand Together or Starve Alone: Unity and Chaos in the U.S. Food Movement

“Renee Brooks Catacalos has been, and continues to be, a tireless advocate for the local food traditions of the Chesapeake Bay region. She is also a brilliant writer with a razor-sharp focus and the ability to bring to life disparate aspects of the Chesapeake, including the simple joys of home-cooked local food. This book is a welcome addition to the body of work on our magnificent Bay.”

John Shields, Gertrude’s Restaurant
