Food and Cooking
Locavore (noun): One who tries to eat only locally grown foods. Being a locavore is good for you, good for the earth, good for local farmers and good for the Michigan economy! Learn more about how and why to be a locavore; check out "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle," by best-selling author Barbara Kingsolver, with Stephen L. Hopp and Camille Kingsolver.
I’m always on the lookout for great coffee, so I enjoyed reading about local roasters in the Winter 2009 issue of Edible WOW. A little coffee history, roasting philosophy, and some buying tips had me wishing for a hot cup of joe while I read the rest of the articles—including one on local famers harvesting winter greens. Now I want a salad, too.
Bill Moyers recently interviewed food expert Michael Pollan about the ideal candidate for Secretary of Agriculture as President-Elect Obama names his cabinet. If it were up to Moyers, Pollan would be named, but Pollan disagrees.
