Urban Food Sharing:Rules, Tools and Networks Anna Davies
If your pantry was empty, your children hungry, your electricity cut off for nonpayment, and you saw no prospect of support, what would you do? For a decade in a rural Tennessee community, you went to a shabby building behind a church and found Laura Willis. Running a program to help the needy, Laura discovered a world of people she never knew: the lonely and unemployed, chronically poor families, and middle-class folks surprised to be struggling in a great recession. And to each she offered a bag of groceries, a compassionate ear, and a heart of love. Taking a tiny food pantry and watching it grow to feed hundreds, Laura learned about her own hunger for God and began to discern her own spiritual directions, learning how her calling card - a bag of groceries - could be a gift to others and to herself of abundance and grace. 1.

He kissed Tasha and ran into the house to shower and change. By the time he returned to the patio, the women had just finished deciding on Mexican food. Of course Tasha knew of a place that delivered, and she instructed Todd to start making margaritas. The three moved to the living room and soon the celebration was in full swing. Lydia was happy. She loved the company, loved the booze, and loved the food when it arrived. The three reminisced and Todd enjoyed the stories Tasha told of various adventures in their upbringing. Once they finished eating, Todd blended up another pitcher of margaritas and they all went out to the patio to relax for a bit. The pitcher was stronger, and after her third margarita, Lydia started to feel the effects of the alcohol. She stared at Tasha. You´re so damn gorgeous, she thought and then gasped when she realized she hadn´t thought it to herself but had actually made the comment out loud. Tasha winked at her and smiled, and Lydia felt heat cover her cheeks as she blushed what she was certain was a deep shade of red. Todd stood up and walked behind Tasha 1. Language: English.

Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2012: USA Winner, Best Japanese Cuisine Book ´´Our life centers on the farm and the field. We eat what we grow.´´ --Nancy Singleton Hachisu, Japanese Farm Food offers a unique window into life on a Japanese farm through the simple, clear-flavored recipes cooked from family crops and other local, organic products. The multitude of vibrant images by Kenji Miura of green fields, a traditional farmhouse, antique baskets, and ceramic bowls filled with beautiful, simple dishes are interwoven with Japanese indigo fabrics to convey an intimate, authentic portrait of life and food on a Japanese farm. With a focus on fresh and thoughtfully sourced ingredients, the recipes in Japanese Farm Food are perfect for fans of farmers´ markets, and for home cooks looking for accessible Japanese dishes. Personal stories about family and farm life complete this incredible volume. American born and raised, Nancy Singleton Hachisu lives with her husband and teenage sons on a rural Japanese farm, where they prepare these 165 bright, seasonal dishes. The recipes are organized logically with the intention of reassuring you how easy it is to cook Japanese food. Not just a book about Japanese food, Japanese Farm Food is a book about love, life on the farm, and community. Covering everything from pickles and soups to noodles, rice, and dipping sauces, with a special emphasis on vegetables, Hachisu demystifies the rural Japanese kitchen, laying bare the essential ingredients, equipment, and techniques needed for Japanese home cooking. ´´Nancy Hachisu is...intrepid. Outrageously creative. Intensely passionate. Committed. True and real. I urge you to cook from this book with abandon, but first read it like a memoir, chapter by chapter, and you will share in the story of a modern-day family, a totally unique and extraordinary one.´´ --Patricia Wells ´´This book is both an intimate portrait of Nancy´s life on the farm, and an important work that shows the universality of an authentic food culture.´´ --Alice Waters ´´The modest title Japanese Farm Food turns out to be large, embracing and perhaps surprising. Unlike the farm-to-table life as we know it here, where precious farm foods are cooked with recipes, often with some elaboration, real farm food means eating the same thing day after day when it´s plentiful, putting it up for when it´s not, and cooking it very, very simply because the farm demands so much more time in the field than in the kitchen. This beautiful, touching, and ultimately common sense book is about a life that´s balanced between the idea that a life chooses you and that you in turn choose it and then live it wholeheartedly and largely. Thank you, Nancy, for sharing your rich, intentional and truly inspiring life.´´ --Deborah Madison ´´Nancy Hachisu´s amazing depth of knowledge of Japanese food and culture shines through in every part of this book. You will feel as if you live next door to her...savoring and learning her down-to-earth approach to cooking and to loving food.´´ --Hiroko Shimbo ´´Taking a peek into Nancy Hachisu´s stunning Japanese Farm Food is like entering a magical world. It´s a Japan that used to be, not the modern Japan defined by the busyness of Tokyo, but a more timeless place, a place whose rhythms are set by seasons and traditions and the work of the farm. Japanese Farm Food is so much more than a cookbook. This book has soul. Every vegetable, every tool has a story. Who grew this eggplant? Who made this soy sauce? Nancy doesn´t have to ask, ´´Where does my food come from?´´ She knows. Here´s a woman who grows and harvests her own rice, grain by grain. Not that she asks or expects us to do the same at all. What she does offer is a glimpse into her life in rural Japan, with its shoji screens and filtered light, and recipes from her farm kitchen that you can´t wait to try.´´ --Elise Bauer, SimplyRecipes.com ´´Japanese Farm Food is a lovely book about the culture, landscape, and food of Japan, a true insider´s view of the Japanese kitchen, from farm to table, by a passionate and talented writer.´´ --Michael Ruhlman

Life was good for Jada and her family, until an unknown creature started lurking around the property and terrorizing the livestock, leaving footprints around the barn and coming close to the farmhouse.
