Short, infinitely readable (both authors write for magazines) and fluffy. A far cry from Gary Paul Nabhan's Coming Home to Eat with his hardcore foraging and tracing of native foods, but still enjoyable.

It was fun to relate to events in the book, like the first inaugural local dinner which cost them over $100 just for local products, or the search for local flour.

I don't know if Tal and I could ever truly eat within 100 miles of where we live. We are too Americanized, love our meat too much and are on too constrained of a budget. Maybe someday?

I'm just looking forward to having those chickens.

Hope I'll be over constantly when they're chicks- too cute to leave alone!
