Locally Grown: Hudson Valley Food & Farming
Tessa Edick. Hudson Valley Food & Farming: Why Didn’t Anyone Ever Tell Me That? American Palate, 2014.
I live in New York City, where “locally grown” has a meaning all to itself, but the Hudson Valley is a big part of it and a well kept secret from many of us city folk. Edick, who writes a “meet the farmer” column for upstate newspapers, makes it clear that when it comes to growing food, the Hudson Valley is special. Her book introduces readers to its farmers, products, and programs, lavishly and gorgeously photographed.
