On this passionate, cross-Canada odyssey, Margaret Webb introduces readers to 12 great farmers or, as she calls them, chefs of the soil and the sea, tractor-seat philosophers, poet biologists, thingamajig inventors, and zealous educators. Her stories of the challenges they face growing good food are inspiring, touching, gritty. They will make you hungry. They will make you laugh. They will make you run to your nearest farmers' market to hug a farmer. Arranged into sections titled Starters,Mains, and To Finish, these stories are of the passionate, driven people who farm and produce food in our country.
