For local food enthusiasts, Prairie Feast, by Amy Jo Ehman is an entertaining read. Long before, the 100 mile diet was popular, Ehman, a Saskatchewan born writer decided to eat local for a year. There were a few exceptions to the rule, coffee being one and leeway when dining at restaurants or friends. For the most part, however, Ehman and her husband ate food from Saskatchewan for 365 days. The book is filled with adventures of gathering the food, as well as, memories of her growing up on the farm. It is well written and also includes recipes.
