0706 Kingsolver book
Originally uploaded by rooruu.
This one came highly recommended - I've seen it mentioned round and about. The novelist Barbara Kingsolver, with her husband and two girls, move back to the family farm in the Appalachians (from the Arizona desert). Their goal is to see, in a year, if they can eat seasonally, and locally, and grow as much as possible themselves. In Arizona, pretty much every foodstuff carried with it a burden of the fuel required to get it from wherever to Tucson. One thing they aimed to do was to reduce this burden. I'm not finished reading it yet, but it's good, thought-provoking stuff (with some very do-able recipes).

The recipes, and more about the book, are here:
