“Renee Catacalos has done a great service to the cause of local foodways in the mid-Atlantic by writing this book, a thorough, informative, and wide-ranging look at how we eat now—and how, with more support, more food hubs, and continued awareness of the ecological and social issues that affect our ever-widening food stream, we might eat in the future.”

Todd Kliman, author of The Perfect Chef

“Reading this book was an absolute delight. Not only does Renee Brooks Catacalos show that eating local is possible, but that it is pleasurable, too, as you go foraging locally to savor the ‘tastes of the region.’ Read it and then seek and find local food.”

David Kline, editor of Farming Magazine
