Taste, Memory: Forgotten Foods, Lost Flavors, and Why They Matter
By David Buchanan
Restoring Diversity to Our Fields, Markets and Tables
Taste, Memory traces the experiences of modern-day explorers who reveal our shared food heritage and reconnect us to long-held traditions and tastes that are at the heart of the locavore movement.
This book begins and ends with a simple premise: that a healthy food system depends on matching diverse plants and animals to the demands of land and climate. In this sense of place lies the true meaning of local food.
