Renee Brooks Catacalos - The Chesapeake Table: Your Guide to Eating Local & Claudia Kousoulas and Ellen Letourneau - Bread and Beauty: A Year in Montgomery County's Agricultural Reserve — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Catacalos’s comprehensive guide to becoming a locavore includes detailed information on edible resources within a 150-mile radius of the District, compelling social and ecological arguments for eating local, and a collection of wonderful recipes based on foods of the Chesapeake area. From farmers’ markets to farm-based breweries and distilleries to grass-fed beef, the region has something for every taste, diet, income level, and ethnicity, and Catacalos, former publisher of Edible Chesapeake magazine, shows how easy and rewarding it is to take advantage of this natural abundance.

Combining farmland, open-space, animal sanctuaries, and educational and recreational activities, Montgomery County’s 93,000-acre Agricultural Reserve is a nationally recognized model of sustainable land use. Drawing on the Reserve’s history and natural wealth, Kousoulas, a long-time planner and writer on architecture, design, cooking, and culinary history, and Letourneau, a Reserve event planner and project coordinator for this book, present more than one-hundred recipes grounded in local traditions and seasonal rhythms. Accompanying essays introduce farmers, producers, and Reserve personnel, highlight the project’s issues and achievements, and take readers to special seasonal feasts at different locations throughout the Reserve.
