"[Locally Grown] spotlights entrepreneurial sustainable farmers in the Midwest and the Chicago chefs who use their ingredients.... Each farmer's story is accompanied by anecdotes from well-known Chicago chefs, including Paul Kahan and Stephanie Izard, who describe how relationships with these growers are central to the success of their own small businesses." Judith Nemes, Crain's Chicago Business
"We love supporting the local movement, and this book has us craving a road trip to see the process firsthand." PureWow
"A truly engaging look at [the] Midwestern farm." Amy Azzarito, Design*Sponge
"Author Anna Blessing, a freelance writer from Chicago, found [organic farmer Jude] Beckerand 19 other independent farmersby talking to Chicago-area chefs who use organic and local products.... [Becker] agreed to be part of the book, he said, because, 'it is important for people to understand the cycle of farm to table and how committed farms, chefs and eaters need to be to make the cycle sustainable for all, and I think Anna can show this in her book.'" Jennifer Miller, Des Moines Register
"Anyone who enjoys farming stories, cooking, animals, and locally grown food will treasure this book. It’s well done, interesting, and beautiful." Margo Dill, News-Gazette, Champaign, IL
"Anna Blessing’s reverent new book, Locally Grown, explores Midwest farms and the people who run them, providing rich history, photographs, and seasonal recipes. Chef specialties are nice (they’re in the book, too), but we love Blessing’s inclusion of farmers’ family dishes." Daily Candy Chicago blog
"The local foods movement has captured the attention, and the imagination, of many of the chefs among us.... In her new book, Locally Grown, Blessing set out to find out what makes midwestern farms and Chicago chefs such a good fit." Mitch Teich, Lake Effect, WUWM Milwaukee Public Radio
"With the popularity of farmers markets in this region, the interest of consumers in locally grown food is becoming more and more apparent.... I was struck by [Blessing's] references to agriculture not only as a science, as we've always known, but also as an art." Spectrum West, WPR Wisconsin Public Radio
