"Amazing and eloquent....Nabhan makes us understand how finding and eating local foods connects us deeply and sensually."—Alice Waters, Chez Panisse Issuing a "profound and engaging...passionate call to us to re-think our food industry" (Jim Harrison, author of The Raw and the Cooked), Gary Paul Nabhan reminds us that eating close to home is not just a matter of convenience—it is an act of deep cultural and environmental significance. Embodying "a perspective...at once ecological, economic, humanistic, and spiritual" (Los Angeles Times), Nabhan has dedicated his life to raising awareness about food—as an avid gardener, as an ethnobotanist preserving seed diversity, and as an activist devoted to recovering native food traditions in the Southwest. This "inspired and eloquently detailed account" (Rick Bayless, Chefs Collaborative) tells of his year-long mission to eat only foods grown, fished, or gathered within two hundred miles of his home. "A good book for gardeners to read this winter" (The New York Times), Nabhan's work "weav[es] together the traditions of Thoreau and M. F. K. Fisher [in] a soul food treatise for our time" (Peter Hoffman, Chefs Collaborative).

"Christ talked about the vine and the vineyard, the fisherman and the good shepherd. He made farming sound like a process, almost like religion. Virginia is a state that is biblical in its proportions-it has vineyards and orchards; streams with native trout and a long Atlantic coastline; open fields for grazing and woodland habitat for deer and small game." Thus begins the ultimate guide to local foods in Virginia. Phyllis Wilson has compiled it all in one smart reference. Whether you are wondering where to buy the freshest vegetables or meat raised in a humane fashion without steroids and hormones you will find it all in Eating Local in Virginia. Farms open to the public, farm stores, farmers' markets, as well as stores and restaurants who seek out locally raised food are all listed here. Wilson believes that people are beginning to wake up and realize the inherent problems in our grain-based factory food system and the damage it is doing to our health. She sees the local food movement as people reaching out to a better system. But where does one find good naturally grown food? Often, this becomes a problem. In her book she takes the reader on a journey across the state visiting farms and restaurants, asking the right questions, and listening to the comments of the people who raise our food. Join her on the journey and you will never again have to ask "what shall we eat?" or "where shall we dine?"

The 2014 Christianity Today Book Award Winner (Christian Living) Food is the source of endless angst and anxiety. We struggle with obesity and eating disorders. Reports of agricultural horror stories give us worries about whether our food is healthy, nutritious or justly produced. It's hard to know if our food is really good for us or for society. Our relationship with food is complicated to say the least. But God intended for us to delight in our food. Rachel Stone calls us to rediscover joyful eating by receiving food as God's good gift of provision and care for us. She shows us how God intends for us to relate to him and each other through food, and how our meals can become expressions of generosity, community and love of neighbor. Eating together can bring healing to those with eating disorders, and we can make wise choices for sustainable agriculture. Ultimately, redemptive eating is a sacramental act of culture making through which we gratefully herald the feast of the kingdom of God. Filled with practical insights and some tasty recipes, this book provides a Christian journey into the delight of eating. Come to the table, partake of the Bread of Life—and eat with joy.
