"Channeling Wendell Berry at his best, Heidi Barr's personal and familial book of meditations and recipes resounds with a highly original voice of her own. Hers is an active and proactive philosophy, taking the reader through the seasons of growth and renewal tied to the land, its bounty and challenges. Highlights are photographs that draw the reader into Barr's world, stories of and from her own extended family across the generations, and a powerful authenticity: Barr clearly practices what she preaches, an active philosophy that resonates from every page. This short, intimate book is like a gift of good food for body and soul, and like Barr's delicious recipes, her writing will make you hungry for more."~William Huggins, writer and contributor for Texas Review in Books
"As the producer of a food podcast for public radio, new cookbooks and guides to eating and living cross my desk daily.Prairie Grown stands out for its originality, simplicity, and clarity. On a personal note, I grew up in South Dakota and remember admiring Ms. Barr and her family for their quiet self-sufficiency, refusal to buy into material culture, and independence of spirit. After living in New York City for the last decade, I admire that ethos -- evident in this book -- all the more."~Anne Noyes Saini, WNYC's "The Sporkful"
Like a lovingly prepared meal, Prairie Grown delights the senses on several levels. Barr's calm and serene prose invites the reader to slow down and savor a progression through one year, beginning in January, when a garden is asleep under a snowy blanket. The recipes interspersing this progression reinforce an awareness of the here and how: the snow, the buds, the fruit, the harvest. The illustrations at the same time please the eye and emphasize the profound beauty that lies all around in a simple garden year.Sue Leaf, finalist for the Minnesota Book Awards & author of The Bullhead Queen: A Year on Pioneer Lake and Portage: A Family, A Canoe and the Search for the Good Life.
Heidi Barr's Prairie Grown is a feast for the senses. This beautiful book offers us a bounty of flavorful recipes as well as some of the flavor of life on a South Dakota farm. The beautiful photographs which accompany the recipes guide us on a stroll through the seasons. Anyone who loves gardening or local, seasonal cooking is sure to enjoy this book."Gregory Ripley, author of Tao Of Sustainability: Cultivate Yourself to Heal the Earth
