I read this book piecemeal over A YEAR DRAWN TO THE BOOKMARK year drawn to the bookmark the book and feel that the subject entranced me The writing less so but this is a good book where the subject will transcend writing style I liked this book but I wanted to love it I learned about dulse scallop fishing and ice wine but I wanted to learn Perhaps it is because I am an academic but when I learn about something I like to learn about it in depth This book was an interesting travelogue but I did not learn about any one subject deeply Parts of this book were interesting the author introduces us to 11 Canadian farmers who are focused on uality rather than uantity But somehow the book as a whole ust didn t work for me Maybe it was too much focus on the author rather than the farmers themselves Or maybe it was the somewhat artificial focus on only one product per provincefarm while paying lip service to the benefits of mixed farming This informative entertaining and often humorous look at Canadian food farming is a gem Webb inspired by a carrot travelled across the country looking at farmers who are being inspired "to put taste and nutrition into their crops rather than submitting to the uantity is king mindset Webb chooses a "put taste and nutrition into their crops rather than submitting to the uantity is king mindset Webb chooses a from each of the ten provinces and one of the territories as her focus and finds a farmer to each of the ten provinces and one of the territories as her focus and finds a farmer to that foodHer book includes not only interesting information about the food and An interesting read about Canadian farmers starting with apple growers and moving across the provincesoysters cheese vineyards wheat etc I found the stories fascinating and being from a rural background could relate to the appeal of the farming lifestyle as well as the uncertainty of the farming business as most of the stories involved smaller generations old family farms If you ate today thank a farmer Excellent book a Canadian version of Michael Polla.
