  1. Hello Jorie! Pamela of Lavish Bookshelf visiting you back via the Return to Food book tour.

    I enjoyed your review quite a lot. I liked your emphasis on local markets and heirloom seeds. Like you, I felt the book was good, but didn’t provide many action points that a reader could implement easily.

    Hope we meet again on tour shortly!

      Hallo Pamela, it is lovely to meet you!

      I tried to find your name on your blog but I clearly missed it, forgive me! I am so happy you dropped by! I definitely felt we had both approached the book with the same hopeful attitude going into reading it, and walked away with similar issues in the end. Yes, those absent takeaways were a bit surprising to me, which is why I started mentioning a few things on my review that came to mind as I read the book itself. These exclusions truly did surprise me, because there is so much happening right now in the locavore food movement and a resurgence of locally owned cafes and restaurants getting back to sourcing their ingredients direct from farmers. Thanks for loving my s/o for the heirloom seeds! I truly was surprised they were not mentioned at all nor the ancient grains which are being produced without chemicals!? Odd.

      I definitely do hope we are on an upcoming tour again — although I know I will be visiting with you outside of that too! Have a lovely day!
