“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

“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
