- Author of Prairie Feast: A Writers' Journey Home for Dinner.
"Prairie Feast taps into a universal desire to find ourselves, our community and our history through the food we eat. It's not about miles or greenhouse gasses or 'doing the right thing' (although that is a bonus), but about rediscovering the roots of a daily ritual that nourishes us body, mind and soul."
