Andrea Bemis’ second cookbook, Local Dirt: Seasonal Recipes for Eating Close to Home is a dazzling collection of inventive recipes using farm-fresh ingredients, inspired by her commitment to supporting the local food movement.

Andrea is the writer, recipe developer, and photographer behind the food blog and cookbook Dishing Up The Dirt. Andrea’s recipes focus on using whole, locally-sourced foods—incorporating the philosophy of eating as close to the land as possible. Her recipes have been featured in publications such as The New York Times, Well and Good NYC, and Eating Well Magazine. She lives and runs a sixty-acre organic farm outside of Portland, Oregon with her husband and their dog.

Erin Gleeson is the author, illustrator, and photographer behind the New York Times bestselling cookbook The Forest Feast, The Forest Feast for Kids, The Forest Feast Gatherings, The Forest Feast Mediterranean and the popular blog by the same name. Erin teaches Photography in Continuing Studies at Stanford University and lives in a cabin in the woods in Northern California.

“If the farm is my office, the kitchen is my happy place.”

A personal note from Andrea.

Sent following her Conversations with Authors session.

Thank you to everyone who tuned in to my conversation on Wednesday afternoon with Erin Gleeson. 

It was an honor to be in great company and while it’s always a buzz kill to not be able to be with everyone in person, I’m deeply grateful for technology and the kind folks at Book Passage for helping me navigate this virtual event! 

I hope that during these heavy and uncertain times that you can find a little comfort and nourishment in your kitchen. Thank you for supporting my book and for supporting such a wonderful independent bookstore. And of course, if and when you can, please support your local farmers!

If you’re looking for a few more cookbooks to keep you inspired to whip up tasty meals for you and your family, look no further than some of my favorites below.

Be safe, be kind and keep on cooking!
