What’s Falmouth Reading? celebrates food in 2013

The What’s Falmouth Reading? committee celebrates all things food with the selection of Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life and Steve Almond’s Candyfreak as the town-wide reads for 2013.


Animal Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life is the account of a family’s locavore year on their farm in Southern Appalachia. Kingsolver and her coauthors unearth the secret lives of vegetables and the unexpected satisfactions of knowing their food producers — and sometimes their dinner — on a first-name basis.


The family’s year-long experience leads them through a season of planting, pulling weeds, expanding their kitchen skills, harvesting their own animals, joining the effort to save heritage crops from extinction, and learning the time-honored rural art of unloading excess zucchini. Kingsolver’s narrative is enriched by husband Steven Hopp’s in-depth reports on the science and industry of food, and daughter Camille’s youthful perspective on cooking and food culture. “Animal Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life has helped change American attitudes toward food,” said committee chair Marsha Zafiriou. “Kingsolver makes a strong case for putting the kitchen at the center of family life, and local farms at the center of the American diet.”

For additional insight and information visit: www.AnimalVegetableMiracle.com for recipes, web resources, and more.


Candyfreak: A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America takes readers on a quest to discover candy's origins in America, to explore little companies that continue to get by on pluck and perseverance, and to witness the glorious excess of candy manufacturing. Perhaps you remember The Marathon, Oompahs, Bit-O-Choc, or Kit Kat Dark. Where did they go? Driven by his obsession, stubborn idealism, and the promise of free candy, self-confessed candy freak Steve Almond explores the role candy plays in our lives as both source of pleasure and escape from pain. By turns ecstatic, comic, and bittersweet, Candyfreak is the story of how he grew up on candy---and how, for better and worse, candy has grown up too.


Award-winning author Steve Almond is the author of 10 books of fiction and non-fiction, including Not That You Asked, My Life in Heavy Metal, Rock and Roll with Save Your Life. A prolific essayist, his work appears regularly in the Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, the Huffington Post and others. Learn more about his work at www.stevealmondjoy.com.


The committee currently is planning a wide range of programs to promote reading of the books, from author talks to collaborations with local farms and restaurants to help readers better understand the local food chain.

EATING WITH THE SEASONS

Celebrating the bounty of the Falmouth Farmers’ Market and Barbara Kingsolver’s “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle,” the What’s Falmouth Reading? Committee presents “Eating with the Seasons,” a three-part series of hands-on demonstrations and food tastings, starting on April 13 at Highfield Hall in Falmouth.
Each session runs 9:30-11 a.m. and is FREE of charge, but advance sign-up is required as participation is limited.
“Sourcing local foods is so important to our economy and our health,” said Susan Ryan Ackell, a chef and a member of the Falmouth Farmers’ Market board. “By demonstrating how easy it can be to prepare the wonderful foods we can find locally, we hope to make people more aware of what goes into good food, as well as what doesn’t go in.”

The first session, Preserving the Seasons on Saturday, April 13, features Carrie Richter of Peachtree Circle Farm in Sippewissett. Carrie will discuss effortless ways to extract every ounce of pleasure from local food from spring to fall, by freezing, drying and putting by each season's bounty. She will accompany her talk with demos, tips and tastings guaranteed to convince you: plan ahead now!

Foraging Local Treasures will be held on April 20 and will feature shellfisherman Matt Weeks. He’ll discuss where to harvest shellfish on Cape Cod, demonstrate how to buy and use the right equipment, and show participants how to shuck and eat oysters.

The final session, Sourcing Local Cheese, is scheduled for Saturday, May 4, and will feature Patricia Gadsby and Susan Ryan Ackell of the Falmouth Farmers Market. They will show participants how to make fresh cheese at home, and will offer samples and recipes.
The series is sponsored by Falmouth Farmers' Market, Highfield Hall and the What’s Falmouth Reading? Committee.
