How might your current work contribute to the Transition movement?
I am seeking submissions of recipes and photographs to be compiled into a cookbook that will showcase the local faces and flavors of San Luis Obispo. I am looking for fresh, healthy and creative ways of using locally available ingredients, and I would like to feature each contributor with their own chapter or section. I am specifically interested in highlighting the personal stories and connections to our local foods.

Courtney, How is your cookbook coming? I wrote an article on cooking with local grains, originally intended for edible SLO, but that doesn't seem to be happening now. The slant of the article is yeast breadmaking with children (or novices.) I'd love to share the information. Let me know if you are interested.
It was a great pleasure meeting you last Friday morning at FF. Have you read Mark Bittman's "Food Matters"? Also, I have a few thousand recipes that I've developed for my many cooking/gardning classes, including those from a series of classes called "The Epicurean Kitchen Garden"; I'd be happy to start sending them to you (in groups) and you can tell me where to focus so that I get a better idea of exactly what kind of recipes you want.
Thanks Courtney for stoping by Felicitys Farm. I love your grand ideas. You are the hope in our future.
I have a recipe I want you to include. Felicitys Phake Guak. It has story and its has been a hit. I'll send it as soon as I get the story that goes with it.
