“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

“There is so much to admire and discover in Renee Catacalos’s quest for the best local foods and small-scale producers in the Chesapeake foodshed. She is the Chesapeake locavore food maven who informs your food choices to sustain the Chesapeake.”

Bernadine Prince, cofounder of FRESHFARM Markets
