Lohman catalogues important regional foods-- that are at risk of being lost. These are foods that carry significant cultural weight: unique items that grow in limited locations; products from family farms that are shutting down. Each chapter focuses on a food, and includes two recipes so readers can be a part of saving these ingredients by purchasing and preparing them. -- adapted from jacket
