hello friends,

it's high spring in tennessee. every day the forest canopy fills in more, 
and we have lots of beautiful baby goats prancing about. soon it will be 
time for me to hit the road again spreading fermentation fervor. the coming 
months will bring me to north carolina, tennessee, new york, pennsylvania, 
ohio, michigan, and virginia (dates and contact info below). please come 
check out my workshops, or forward this to people you know who might be 

i'm trying to spend most of my time at home working on my new book. it's 
(tentatively) called underground food: culinary resistance and revolution 
in many different flavors. it's been inspired largely by people i have met 
-- food activists -- over the past few years as i have traveled around 
talking to people about fermentation.

a lot of what i am writing about is how the small-scale local trade of 
unadulterated foods has been made illegal, and examples of communities 
where people are organizing underground markets to exchange local foods, in 
some cases perfectly legal, in others technically illegal by virtue of laws 
which favor mass production. i'm looking for examples of this small-scale 
unauthorized free trade of local foods. please email me with your related 
stories and experiences. thanks!

if you would rather not receive my periodic mailings, let me know and i 
will remove your name from the list.

i hope you're having a great spring!
