A charming ode (with recipes) to eating well and locally, on $40 dollars per week, from a recently unemployed food-journalism veteran. In 2009, Robin Mather found herself unemployed. She consequently moved to rural Michigan, where she committed to eating three home-cooked, seasonal, and local meals a day. In essays that chronicle a year of her ambitious project, Mather explores the confusion surrounding local eating and examines how often we fail to pay attention to the seasons that surround us. With 150 winning recipes such as Lemon-Tarragon Pickled asparagus and Greek-Marinated Grilled Leg of Lamb, Mather draws on her rich kitchen knowledge, honed by years as a food writer. This narrative-cookbook hybrid shares encouraging advice for aspiring locavores, offering both the virtues of kitchen thrift and the pleasures of cooking well.

On settling in and making maple
On snapping turtles and strawberries
On asparagus and the all-too-brief window
On early beets and solar hoop houses
On chooks and coffee
On spring lamb and the butcher's headaches
On springing heifers and well-made cheese
On fireflies, sweet cherries, and the hissing kettle
On wild-crafting, bartering, and the very warm hat
On dog days, a new arrival, and heretical thinking
On cicadas, sweet corn, and the pleasure of a job well done
On the traitorous sumac, seeking warmth, and the plentiful pantry
On cider, cornmeal, and comfort
On pumpkins, pears, and woolly bears
On Thanksgiving and the local table
On making something from nothing, or the value of kitchen wizardry
On chilly winds and homey contentment
On blizzards and dried beans
On intoxicating aromas and the world outside my door
On deep snow, bitter nights, and newfound wealth
