Review

"Christine Barbour and Scott Hutcheson have cooked up a tasty read seasoned with perfect portions of both the exotic and good ol' fashioned down home Hoosier goodness, beautifully served with a deep respect and keen awareness of our sacred relationship with the world we live in and the foods we raise, grow, and eat." —Michael Atwoodhost, Across Indiana

Format: Paperback
I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book for a few months. My copy arrived this morning and I can enthusiastically say, "The wait was worth it and the book is even more than I had hoped it would be!"
Unlike many of the books published today, the quality of the book far exceeds the price in terms of both the quality of the book itself and the content.

The book is divided into seven regions. For each region Christine Barbour and Scott Hutcheson introduce the reader to Indiana places where food is produced with a personal and local touch. They go far beyond the basic facts (e.g., address, website URL, hours, etc.) and introduce the reader to the people that put heart and soul into their product and the places that make that food homegrown.

This personalization and connection is sometimes accomplished through stories and biographical snippets. For example, the entry for Cook's Bison Ranch begins, "In 1939,Everett Cook invested %5,000 in 83 acres with a house and a barn." Sometimes the entries are made personal through the inclusion of a recipe such as that for "Wild American Persimmon Pudding" which brings back childhood memories for Duane Smith of Walnut Grove Spring Water Persimmon Valley Farm. In other cases it is the observations of the authors that add spice to the entries. The combined effect is the feeling you might have at the end of an evening that included an excellent meal and even better conversation and laughter shared with good friends.

In some books the extra stories and observations might come at the cost of depth or breadth in covering the subject matter. This is NOT the case in Home Grown Indiana.

Format: Paperback
Indiana is rich in agricultural heritage and independent, local farmers dig in their heels against soulless agribusiness. Until the past few years, though, Indiana lacked consumers willing to appreciate and pay for this bounty.

With the publication of Scott's and Christine's book, Home Grown Indiana, those of us passionate about local and sustainable food have a reliable resource guide to farms, markets, restaurants and shops with high-quality food produced in our state. Home Grown is a watershed in our awareness of the table of communion all around us.

The book is practical, sensible. Protected by its plastic cover from tomato sauce stains in the kitchen or dust from the glove compartment of the car, the authors divide Indiana into geographic regions. Special stories about those creating local cornucopia teach us to wander away from the megastores and onto the backroads.

The book has an added attraction. I no longer have to worry about what I'm going to buy for Christmas. Everybody's getting a copy of the book this holiday.

Format: Paperback
If one resides in the Hoosier state, you don't have to travel far to get great food. "Home Grown Indiana: A Food Lover's Guide to Good Eating in the Hoosier State" takes a look at the finest food one can find in the state of Indiana. With an examination of how the best food starts with the best livestock and best plants, it takes a farm to plate approach to good eating. With many ideas presented as well in cookbook form, "Home Grown Indiana" offers much to read for even those who live outside of Indiana.
