Dooley does much more than recycle familiar arguments for eating local; she personalizes the path from farm to fork with heart and skill. Unapologetically sentimental, deeply informative, and always practical. . . . In Winter’s Kitchen is essential reading.”J. Ryan Stradal, The Wall Street Journal
Through her passionate yet straightforward and enticingly simple prose, Dooley invites us to share in her bounty. Like any good book about food, In Winter’s Kitchen inspires us to cook.”Kansas City Star
"A beautiful writer. In Ms. Dooley’s world, 'kids drank cider because milk was reserved for making butter and cheese.' And we get to meet neighbors like Atina Diffley, who dropped out of a music conservatory at age nineteen to grow food, 'and who calls on all of us to reclaim our land, our food, and power over our lives.' Certainly a message to love."Huffington Post
In this homage to local food, Dooley paints an exquisite portrait. Each of Dooley’s twelve chapters showcases a different local food such as apples, wheat, chestnuts, cranberries, corn, wild rice, and sweet potatoes. The author includes a few recipes but explains that this is not a cookbook; rather, it is the story of the author building relationships with the small, independent farmers, processors, and chefs’ who make their living building and contributing to local economies throughout the Upper Midwest.”Publishers Weekly
Beth Dooley has written the book we need, a collection of stories about the foods we eat in winter, the season that is so often ignored, as if it doesn’t count somehow, or even exist. Part memoir and part serious food study with beguiling but essential recipes, you don’t have to be from Minnesota to apply the wisdom of In Winter’s Kitchen to your own life, wherever it takes place. A wonderful work!”Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy
Beth Dooley’s In Winter’s Kitchen is a reflection on the way that we become at home in the world, by coming into deep relationship with our food, our farmers, our family, and the land through what she refers to as foraging for goodness.’ Dooley tells the story of the iconic foods of the Midwest landscape, their origins, their production as well as the challenges to the integrity of local food. Each chapter celebrates the relationship between land and culture, from Anishinaabek wild rice to Hmong sweet potatoes. Her warm inviting prose invites you to the kitchen table and reminds you of what we’re all really hungry forconnection. I wanted to linger with the lush images, ripe with memory and mothering. Recipes,’ she says are stories with happy endings.’”Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass
Beth Dooley creates culture in the kitchen, connecting readers, farmers, and food in the soup pot of biological diversity. Knowing where we are by the food we eat was the reality of the past and is the trend of the future. In Winter’s Kitchen is a fascinating read; cultivating the knowledge we need to make diverse, local food a reliable realitythe most crucial task of our time. Read this book, and pay attention as if life depends on the truth it contains. It does.”Atina Diffley, author of Turn Here Sweet Corn
That Beth Dooley is a dynamite cook and journalist is a given in my book. She’s the expert who is deep in the trenches with the farmers, the artisans, hunters and the gatherers, and every important dimension of food today. With this book you get outstanding recipes and you get Beth sharing her stories, people and insights.”Lynne Rossetto Kasper, Host and Co-Creator, The Splendid Table from American Public Media
