Book Review: Michigan’s Guide to Local Cooking

While traveling recently I read the book Michigan’s Guide to Local Cooking by Susan Clemente. It was published by Orange Whisk Books in 2011.

The first few chapters educate the readers on farm issues, food certifications, and details specific to Michigan agriculture. There is a handy chart that lists the crops available each month of the year in Michigan. It also briefly mentions Michigan produced beer and wine.

Even if you have been a dedicated foodie for years, as I have been, I bet you will learn something new. And, there are 90 pages of recipes featuring seasonal food.

The book ends with a reference guide of websites, books, and films. The recipes are conveniently indexed.
