Fresh Food Nation is at the intersection of a big need and a big trend. The need is for recipes, techniques, and inspiration for fresh produce, especially vegetables. The trend is the growing desire to eat local and connect with the source of our food--not just because locally grown food is fresher and tastier, but because it offers emotional, environmental, and food safety benefits.CSAs (community-supported agriculture organizations)are the latest wave in the rising tide of eating local. Having a share in a CSA is a more intimate and committed way of cooking with super-fresh fruits, vegetables, and even dairy products, poultry, meat, and bread. Regard of whether you are a CSA member, frequent your local farmer’s market, or buy produce at the market, Fresh Food Nation offers simple, delicious, intriguing recipes for seasonal, fresh produce. Fresh Food Nation at its heart is a great basic vegetable and fruit recipe book, but it is wrapped in a very timely and relevant concept—eating with the bounty of the season, family farming, coming together to distribute food to the community--making it, in essence, the new “community” cookbook.
In this engaging book, Christian Comeliau argues that any attempt to understand the historical logic of modernity as a social system must start with the economy.
His exploration focuses on the dominant position of market economies in the social system. He examines contemporary phenomena such as the idea of indefinite growth as the mainspring of development, the intensification of social inequality and the future of work, difficulties resulting from globalization and international trade, and questions regarding the future role of the state.
Like other residents of the strage communities of Crestone and the Baca, Christopher O'Brien was drawn to the sacred valley of Native American myth. He was soon compelled to document, in disturbing detail, the inexplicable events unfolding around him and the questions they raised: What is the truth behind the nightly light show of UFOs pulsing and glowing across the sky? What are the strange rumbling noises coming from underground? What is the origin of a mysterious crystal skull found in the Baca? And most frightening of all, who is responsible for the scores of cattle left blood and mutilated in inhuman fashion? Including fascinating and sometimes frightening first-hand accounts by residents of the area, The Mysterious Valley reveals the story of one of the most bizarre regions on the face of the earth and its chilling implications for the rest of humanity.
