"Have you read Barbara Kingsolver's recent book: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle? It details her family's experiences eating only locally derived foods."
I have heard of this book, but haven't yet read it. I will try to get a copy at Bookpeople before I head off to Boston.
I did however come across this site:
James and Alisa set out to try an all local foods diet that came from 100 miles away. They finished the journey by writing a book:
Plenty: One Man, One Woman, and a Raucous Year of Eating Locally
Worth taking a peak at I'm sure. I was humored by Anothony Bourdain's comment of their adventure:
"I think they're nuts!"
Thanks for your comment Amanda! Keep 'em coming
