Oh my the dreaded one star review I must say I went into this book with high hopes and ended up uite disappointed It seems like a book I would love a couple around my age living in Vancouver and trying to spend one year living on only food that was grown or raised within 100 miles of their home In our society these days this is no easy task They have predictable adventures trying to find difficult to locate foods flour salt anything but potatoes in the winter etc but in the end the stories were mild and unamusing The couple takes turns writing one chapter after the other and although it is occasionally interesting to hear their differing takes on the same subjects neither of them possess the skill to keep the reader enthused and splitting the workload did nothing to solve that deficiency The book was crafted from a blog that the couple kept while practicing the 100 mile diet and it reeks of blog at e

I should begin by disclosing that I was from minute one hugely troubled by the use of the word raucous in the title If it is indeed possible to eat in a raucous manner I don t want to hear about it much less a year s worth of it Shudder You can keep your rowdy disorderly strident eating to yourself One is left to assume then that the authors or a particularly misguided set of marketing people use raucous as do with great freuency the college women I work with who are otherwise charming if Republican to signify extreme in a really fun way I would object mildly to this too since it s non standard without actually being cool edgy fresh or descriptiveInstead however I m forced to object strongly In fact that catastrophically mischosen adjective becomes a synecdoche for what s wrong with the book Here s the thing Ms Smith and Mr MacKinnon do not in the entire course of the book do anything rowdy disorderl

What I liked about this book I feel like both of the authors but particularly Alisa were able to capture the sense of wonder that I have felt about discovering where food comes from and feeling so much closer to it when you know the source I was never particularly interested in food or where it came from until my husband became a farmer but now that I regularly and for some meals exclusively eat food came from a farm 20 miles away and was picked that very afternoon by Kurt s own hands eating is a whole new experience I loved that this book was able to put into words those feelings that I have had since we have been fortunate enough to start eating mostly locallyWhat I didn t like about this book first of all there was nothing raucous about it That part of the subtitle is totally misleading Parts of the book alternated between dry history lessons and scolding sessions about how we are wasting the eart
