January Food For Thought Book Club

January 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Within a single week in 2009, food journalist Robin Mather found herself on the threshold of a divorce and laid off from her job at the Chicago Tribune. Forced into a radical life change, she returned to her native rural Michigan.

There she learned to live on a limited budget while remaining true to her culinary principles of eating well and as locally as possible. In The Feast Nearby, Mather chronicles her year-long project: preparing and consuming three home-cooked, totally seasonal, and local meals a day–all on forty dollars a week.

Come and join us to discuss this very nice resource for food preservation and recipes  The author also has insights on the issues that affect rural areas, such as the plight of small food producers, meat processors, store keepers, the lack of some products at the local level.
