The Town That Food Saved: How One Community Found Vitality in Local Food by Ben Hewitt
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I think I burned myself out on foodie books. I didn't find this one to have much of substance. The author himself seemed conflicted as to whether his chosen topic was worth reporting on. It was interesting to read about some of the things going on (the cheese cave, the compost center, the dairies, etc), but I found it hard to connect to the characters I was supposed to connect to. I think this is a book riding the coattails of a movement; I don't think it would stand up on its own.
