“Renee Catacalos has long been a champion of the edible resources and character of the Chesapeake watershed. Her book beautifully ties cultural, historical, and natural resources into a poetic volume that ennobles the people of the greater Chesapeake, giving an appreciation for the sustainable and local in one of America’s most ancient and proud foodscapes.”

Michael Twitty, author of The Cooking Gene: A Journey Through African American Culinary History in the Old South

“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
