A locavore is someone who eats food that has been grown within 100 miles of where they live. As the Accidental Locavore, Anne Maxfield shares her insights, tips and food adventures with you. It came about one summer when Anne stumbled into a wonderful world of freshly grown produce from farmers down the road. Knowing how to navigate local farm markets and being able to pick the best they have to offer is not something that comes easily to many. Here, we’ll show you how.
We will show you how a working woman can cook for her family and friends using the best that nature has to offer in a simple and straightforward way. Here you’ll find our favorite recipes, and give you a chance to add your own. We’ll also show you how to maneuver through the market, picking the best tomatoes, melons, squash and corn among others, no matter whether your market is a big box store, a farm stand, or a local greenmarket.
But it’s not only about produce. Join us as we explore the best of local foods, including meat and fish and stop for an occasional bacon taste test, because as you well know, everything tastes better with bacon! You’ll get to know the farmers and other purveyors, as well as where you can find the best and freshest in your locale.
Knowing where, how and when to shop and what to do with it enables you to live, shop and cook using the best of all worlds. And the Accidental Locavore will show you how easy that is.
