About the Book
Do you like to eat? Do you like farms? Those are not related questions to most people. Food is often only traced back to the supermarket, a restaurant kitchen or, sometimes a farmer's market. To truly understand who we are and what we eat, the path of food needs to be followed all the way to the farm, ocean and field. In the words of Wendell Berry, a world where "producers and consumers cannot know or care about one another...the degradation of products and places, producers and consumers is inevitable." This book is a blueprint for reconnecting ourselves to food and building a sustainable future.
A chef by trade, Anthony Nicalo has spent his lifetime examining the connection between food and its farmed roots. An internationally recognized expert in bringing the farm to the table, Anthony founded Farmstead Wines in 2007, and carefully accredits rare, handcrafted wines from small sustainable farms for its selections. As the co-founder of a non-profit organization, farmfed, he is helping change the way the world thinks about farmers and bringing traceability to our food system.
