The Town That Food Saved: How One Community Found Vitality in Local FoodThe Town That Food Saved: How One Community Found Vitality in Local Food by Ben Hewitt

“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!

    It took me a bit to get going, especially adding my links, but I finally did it. I committed to the Newbie level, and with the three I just shared, I got my initial commitment done. Since I think I can squeeze in at least a couple more foodie-related books, I am upgrading myself to the Pastry Chef level at 4-8 books. Seeing a lot of great reading ideas here. Best, and keep on reading and blogging.

    This is a great idea for a link up. I love foodie books of all kinds. Recipe books, fiction books – an Author who makes great foodie descriptions will quite possibly rate themselves into my top favourite Authors. I’m going to check out the others in your linky now.
