In the tradition of M. F. K. Fisher and Henry David Thoreau, Gary Paul Nabhan relates how his experience with food permeates his life as an avid gardener and forager, as an ethnobotanist and farmland conservation advocate, and as an activist devoted to recovering place-based heritage foods. Nabhan spent a year trying to eat only foods grown, fished, or gathered within 220 miles of his home with surprising results.Already considered a landmark in the locavore movement, Coming Home to Eat makes us understand how finding and eating local foods connects us deeply and sensually with where we are and] why the everyday choices we make about food are the most important choices we make (Alice Waters, chef/owner of Chez Panisse)."
