Issue #34: Winter, 2014-15 – Books That Cook!

Cover 34The 34th edition of Edible Iowa is now online, with a focus on books about food, Iowa authors, even a seed catalog library.  James Beard Award winner Elissa Altman returns with memories of Iowa’s most famous gourmand, Richard Olney.  There’s a book about Iowa’s craft breweries, and then there’s a feature on one of them (how’s that for a segue?).

That cover comes from one of the seed catalogs in the extensive collection at Decorah’s Seed Savers Exchange.

Please don’t forget to visit any/all of our #eiFriends, because we couldn’t bring you all this goodness without them, and be sure to tell’em we sent you.  Also please share the issue widely – we love to share good food!

Public Heaarth Ad 2



This program is Edible‘s effort to share the basic techniques of cooking – to teach fundamentals (as opposed to recipes), and to encourage each student to share what s/he has learned.  We call that #CookItForward.

The Public Hearth was the brainchild of Edible Iowa publisher Kurt Michael Friese, based on two separate essays he wrote about America’s cooking problem.  You can follow (and contribute to!) the development of the Public Hearth on the Facebook page, and by following on Twitter at @ThePublicHearth.

Meanwhile please share widely, and we hope you’ll join us for the class.
