It's easy to understand why this book has received praise from so many publications. It's much more than just another cookbook. The first part of the book is mostly narrative with short articles that celebrate local foods around the United States. There's plenty of humor infused with the writing. For example, in one article the writer was praising kudzu as a food source. Having grown up in the South, I was well acquainted with the nuisance and laughed as the writer gave humorous examples of how it spreads quickly, compared it to some poisonous vines, and discussed harvesting it from someone else's yard. (I don't want to give away the laughs! You'll have to read it yourself.) The book is illustrated by full color illustrations throughout that compliment the work itself. The recipes are mouth-watering and quite doable. Some persons will likely be disappointed that this is not a vegetarian cookbook. However, it celebrates local game, free-range animals, fish and seafood, etc. as well as produce. While I think I will pass on the kudzu recipes, I saw many recipes that I want to try. I borrowed this book from my local library; however, it is remaining on my wish list as I want my own copy.
