Food for Thought
The first commandment of responsible food consumption is "know thy source".
Local foodie Dee Hobsbawn-Smith makes that easy with her new book Foodshed: An Edible Alberta Alphabet ($14.40). She profiles local producers and growers and digs into modern farming and all that entails from government policies and animal welfare to slow food movements and sustainability. And, in keeping with the alphabet theme, there are 26 recipes, for each type of produce explored in the book.
The second commandment of responsible food consumption is never turn down a party with snacks. —Jaelyn Molyneux
