GROWING BEAUTIFUL FOOD

With the paradigm shift toward local and homegrown food, gardeners and foodies have come to relish beautiful vegetable gardens and beautiful meals. Author Matthew Benson writes that beauty inspires behavior, and he believes that we can and will eat better, be healthier, and live more sustainably when we grow food that’s visually enticing.

Benson restored a timeworn gentleman’s farm and operates a community-supported agriculture program on one small acre of the land, offering vegetables, orchard fruit, cut flowers, herbs, eggs and honey from the property. His garden-to-table operation offers an edible feast of textures, colors and aromas and has grown into a way to feed others, while pushing back against the industrial food system in a small but meaningful way.

Growing Beautiful Food is both inspiration and instruction, with detailed growing advice for 50 remarkable crops, a memorable narrative and evocative imagery. It’s a photographic journey through four seasons in the garden, fueling the dream that you can connect to the land by growing your own food. Benson encourages us to start small like he did, celebrate every harvest, and understand that heartbreaking crop losses are simply part of the process. Whether gardeners, families, farmers or chefs, readers will come to the table motivated by the flavor of homegrown, the message of self-sufficiency, and the beautiful food that’s as local as their backyards.

THE COMPASSIONATE HUNTER'S GUIDEBOOK

Wild meat, hunted in a responsible way, is one of the most healthful, sustainable foods possible. Depending on how it is done, hunting can be as local, intimate and humane as it gets. And aside from this, it demands the hunter enter a world of awareness, wildness, life and death that we have lost connection to as a culture.

The Compassionate Hunter's Guidebook is a guide for those that come to the act of hunting with pure intentions, motivated by a desire for healthy food that comes directly from the land where they live. This practical manual suggests that hunting is not a "sport" and the animals whose lives are taken are not "game." It combines a deep, philosophical exploration of the ethics of killing with detailed instructions on every step of the process including:

  • Understanding your prey
  • Tools, techniques and preparation
  • The act of the hunt
  • From forest to table: processing, preserving and preparing your kill

A unique and comprehensive, fully illustrated guide to the complexity, ethics and spirit of the hunt, The Compassionate Hunter is a must-read for beginning and experienced hunters alike. It will appeal to anyone who wishes to delve more deeply into the complex, humbling and ultimately profound reality of our relationship with the food that nourishes us.
