May Foodies Read/ posted in: Reading
Welcome to May’s link up for Foodies Read!
We want to hear about the books that you’ve read that have food as a main plot point. This is a great place to browse and find your next book to read about food also.
We had 20 links in April. All the links from March and April were put in a drawing to win:
“Over the past 3 years, Hardwick, Vermont, a typical hardscrabble farming community of 3,000 residents, has jump-started its economy and redefined its self-image through a local, self-sustaining food system unlike anything else in America. Even as the recent financial downturn threatens to cripple small businesses and privately owned farms, a stunning number of food-based businesses have grown in the region-Vermont Soy, Jasper Hill Farm, Pete’s Greens, Patchwork Farm & Bakery, Apple Cheek Farm, Claire’s Restaurant and Bar, and Bonnieview Farm, to name only a few. The mostly young entrepreneurs have created a network of community support; they meet regularly to share advice, equipment, and business plans, and to loan each other capital. Hardwick is fast becoming a model for other communities to replicate its success. Author Ben Hewitt presents the captivating story of a small town coming back to life, The Town That Food Saved is narrative nonfiction at its best: full of colorful characters and grounded in an idea that will revolutionize the way we eat.”
The winner is Deb with her review of Auntie Lee’s Chilled Revenge.
Our next drawing will be for all the entries in May and June!
