"In Local Dirt, Andrea Bemis nails the argument for eating locally. She has created an incredibly useful tool for learning how to cook with fresh and local ingredients and provides tips and tricks for adapting to a locavore diet. We can't wait to try dishes like the Spring Vegetable Stew and the Fennel and Hazelnut Gratin. This is not just a beautiful cookbook--Bemis takes us on a lovely, culinary journey." -- The Pollan Family, New York Times bestselling authors of Mostly Plants and The Pollan Family Table

"By now we're familiar with the clear and time-tested wisdom in favor of eating locally all year long. Doing so supports our local economies, takes better care of our planet, and it tastes great. Learning to follow the rhythms of seasonal eating however, is not always as obvious; this book provides a straightforward, practical approach for seasonal eating." -- Joshua McFadden, James Beard Award-winning author of Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables

"Andrea shows us how eating locally is an opportunity to be more connected to the people in our community and to ourselves. And of course she always has the best flavor combination ideas. I mean, zucchini butter? Grilled garlic scapes? Farmhouse onion rings? Yes, please!" -- Erin Gleeson, author of The Forest Feast

"Local Dirt is so much more than an inspiring cookbook full of delicious recipes - it's a tool for anyone seeking to nourish themselves with good food from local, trusted sources. Andrea makes you rethink where your food comes from and how to truly shop local to nourish your body and soul." -- Mary Heffernan, rancher and author, Five Marys Ranch Raised Cookbook
