"Barber explores the evolution of American food from the 'first plate,' or industrially-produced, meat-heavy dishes, to the 'second plate' of grass-fed meat and organic greens, and says that both of these approaches are ultimately neither sustainable nor healthy. Instead, Barber proposes Americans should move to the 'third plate,' a cuisine rooted in seasonal productivity, natural livestock rhythms, whole-grains, and small portions of free-range meat"--Provided by publishe

Full Moon Suppers at Salt Water Farm invites you to a series of magical, seasonal suppers where dear friends gather around a farm table to celebrate the bounty that the land and sea provide. This menu-driven cookbook offers twelve beautifully crafted meals derived from more than one hundred sold-out evening events at Salt Water Farm, the author's cooking school in Maine. Even if you can't make it to one of Annemarie's monthly Full Moon Suppers, you can re-create them at home, beneath a full moon--or any night--for family and friends. Each supper includes a portrait of the month: its climate, its rewards, and its ritual kitchen tasks--and a menu inspired by those characteristics. A Full Moon Supper is not only a celebration of the earth and its bounty but a reward for the hard work that goes into food production. These meals pay respect to the elements, the conditions of the earth, soil, and sea, and seasonal traditions as we round the lunar cycle.

"From the award-winning author of The Mushroom Hunters comes the story of an iconic fish, perhaps the last great wild food : salmon. For some, a salmon evokes the distant wild--thrashing in the jaws of a hungry grizzly bear on TV, perhaps. For others, it's the catch of the day on a restaurant menu, or a deep red fillet at the market. For others still, it's the jolt of adrenaline on a successful fishing trip. Our fascination with these superlative fish is as old as humanity itself. Long a source of sustenance among native peoples, salmon is now more popular than ever. Fish hatcheries and farms serve modern appetites with a domesticated "product"--while wild runs of salmon dwindle across the globe. How has this once-abundant resource reached this point, and what can we do to safeguard wild populations for future generations? Langdon Cook goes in search of the salmon in Upstream, his timely and in-depth look at how these beloved fish have nourished humankind through the ages and why their destiny is so closely tied to our own. Cook journeys up and down salmon country, from the glacial rivers of Alaska to the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest to California's drought-stricken Central Valley and a wealth of places in between. Reporting from remote coastlines and busy city streets, he follows today's commercial pipeline from fisherman's net to corporate seafood vendor to boutique marketplace. At stake is nothing less than an ancient livelihood. But salmon are more than food. They are game fish, wildlife spectacle, sacred totem, and inspiration--and their fate is largely in our hands. Cook introduces us to tribal fishermen handing down an age-old tradition, sport anglers seeking adventure and a renewed connection to the wild, and scientists and activists working tirelessly to restore salmon runs. In sharing their stories, Cook covers all sides of the debate : the legacy of overfishing and industrial development ; the conflicts between fishermen, environmentalists, and Native Americans ; the modern proliferation of fish hatcheries and farms ; and the longstanding battle lines of science versus politics, wilderness versus civilization. This firsthand account--reminiscent of the work of John McPhee and Mark Kurlansky--is filled with the keen insights and observations of the best narrative writing. Cook offers an absorbing portrait of a remarkable fish and the many obstacles it faces, while taking readers on a fast-paced fishing trip through salmon country. Upstream is an essential look at the intersection of man, food, and nature. Advance praise for Upstream "Salmon are the essence of the Pacific Northwest, and as Langdon Cook shows so powerfully, they are the key to its future. From the wild flats of Alaska's Copper River to the straitjacketed creeks of California, Upstream captures the myriad ways people and salmon are deeply intertwined."--Rowan Jacobsen, author of The Essential Oyster "Langdon Cook delivers a beautifully written portrait of the iconic salmon that blends history, biology, contentious politics, and the joy of fishing into a captivating and thought-provoking tale."--Eric Jay Dolin, author of Brilliant Beacons "In this fresh tale of an ancient wonder, Langdon Cook takes us on an inspired journey of discovery through the heart and soul of salmon country."--David R. Montgomery, author of King of Fish and Growing a Revolution "Cook takes the reader on a thrilling adventure through the mountains, rivers, farmlands, and kitchens where progress, against all odds, is being made."--Zeb Hogan, biologist and host of National Geographic's Monster Fish"--
