Book - Local Dirt
If you've ever opened a can of coconut milk and realized you had no idea where it came from...you aren't alone. This book will propel you to look more closely at your pantry, take stock of ingredients, and redesign meals around locally sourced products. Written by the owners of an organic vegetable farm in the Pacific Northwest, kale, kohlrabi, beets, and butternut squash come back to the center of dinner table.
In Local Dirt, a 30-day journey of eating locally is protrayed through stories, photographs, and more than 80 recipes, re-creating a not-so-distant world when the ingredients cooked and eaten were produced within local communities. Organized by season, the delicious and creative dishes in this truly sustainable cookbook includes:
- Fennel Gratin
- Kohlrabi Yogurt Salad with Smoked Salmon
- Winter Squash Toast with Honey & Hazelnuts
- Zucchini Swiss Chard & Chickpea Stew
Best of all, the recipes can be adapted to utilize any local fare.
