The Food for Thought Book Club is reading “Plenty: Eating Locally on the 100-Mile Diet” by Alisa Smith.
The book will be discussed Wednesday, Feb. 7, at 6 p.m. in the Gozzer Room.
Like many great adventures, the 100-mile diet began with a memorable feast. Stranded in their off-the-grid summer cottage in the Canadian wilderness with unexpected guests, Smith and J.B. MacKinnon turned to the land around them.
They caught a trout, picked mushrooms, and mulled apples from an abandoned orchard with rose hips in wine. The experience raised a question: Was it possible to eat this way in their everyday lives?
Held in partnership with the Inland Northwest Food Network, discussions are open to anyone interested in the science, cultivation, and preparation of food.
