Editorial Reviews


A gorgeous full-color cookbook with pages you ll be turning slowly, reading and absorbing as you go. . . . This cookbook makes an occasion out of the season itself. . . In many ways, this cookbook is also a theology of food. It reminds us with every page the meaning and place of food in our lives.
--Farmers Independent Weekly

An essential kitchen companion for all of us who love to get our food from our own backyard, local CSA or farmers market--and always need new ideas. This is a book I will turn to over and over again. They've put the recipes in the most organized, easy-to-use cookbook I've seen.
--Catherine Walthers, author of Raising the Salad Bar and Greens, Glorious Greens

I love this cookbook. It not only contains a diverse variety of recipes, but it is chock-full of information about using fresh, local, and seasonal foods. Highly recommended!
--B. Smith, lifestyle expert, cookbook author and entrepreneur

About the Author

Mary Beth Lind is a registered dietitian and nutritional consultant. She and her husband, Lester, are market gardeners in West Virginia: they grow enough fruits and vegetables for their own year-round needs as well as surplus to sell at local farmers' markets. They are also the founders of Mountain Retreat, a Christian retreat center that has as its mission discovering the connection between the spiritual and the organic sources of life.
Mary Beth, a member of Philippi Mennonite Church, grew up eating local seasonal foods in the mountains of West Virginia. Her mother loved gardening and her father, a country doctor, was occasionally paid in produce. Mary Beth graduated from Eastern Mennonite University, Harrisonburg, Virginia, with a degree in home economics, and from Oregon State University with a degree in foods and nutrition. She returned to EMU briefly to teach nutrition.
Mary Beth wrote the foreword for the 25-year anniversary edition of More-with-Less Cookbook. With her sister, Sarah E. Myers, she has also written Recipes from the Old Mill: Baking with Whole Grains.
Food is a part of my spirituality, Mary Beth says. My garden and kitchen are the places where I am most aware of God's mysterious presence, as well as the places where I flesh out my beliefs and values. For me there is a connection between what I eat and how I pray.

Cathleen Hockman-Wert has served as editor for Mennonite Women USA since 1997. In that role, she founded Timbrel, a magazine by Mennonite women in Canada and the United States. She previously served as assistant editor of Gospel Herald, a weekly magazine of the Mennonite Church.
An Oregon native, Cathleen graduated from Goshen College in Indiana and later earned a master's degree in journalism from the University of Oregon. She is a member of Corvallis Mennonite Fellowship and an avid farmers' market shopper.
When I was young, my mother worked fulltime yet always kept us stocked with homemade bread from MCC's first cookbook, More-with-Less. But my journey with local food entered a new level in the 1990s as my husband Dave and I began learning more about environmental issues, Cathleen says. We were discovering the many ways in which our lifestyle choices choices which we are privileged to have as middle-class North Americans affect God's creation and other people.
We gradually became more and more committed to seeking out local, sustainably grown foods. Sometimes this has meant paying more; making that adjustment, for two people ingrained with the frugality ethic, hasn't always been easy. Sometimes we chant a little mantra: 'Cheaper is not always better.' But by now, buying local foods is all joy.
