More than a cookbook, this is a manual for an abundant and thriving ecological food future. Community Table: Recipes for an Ecological Food Future reflects our commitment to building a culinary community that engages consumers, farmers, chefs, and purveyors equally, and celebrates the beauty of connecting around the table. We celebrate the farmers and chefs who model how to prepare and enjoy delicious food while also respecting our shared ecosystem.
Throughout 2016, we invited Community Table Accord chefs and farmers to develop a series of curated dining experiences. Centered around our 10 Principles of a Regenerative Food System, these committed chefs and farms shared the story of food from farm to plate. Each dinner provided a space for community education as well as inspired dialogue around the challenges and solutions inherent in our food system.
This extraordinary series was documented to create a one-of-a-kind cookbook. This cookbook celebrates a year’s worth of incredible dinners through a deep exploration of our food landscape. Chefs, farmers, and purveyors share their role in the food system to build awareness and demonstrate opportunities for all to make a change. This is the first of many cookbook manuals that will be written so that together we can continue to improve our food system and celebrate those who lead the way.
From seasonally-inspired recipes to sourcing suggestions to addressing the importance of polyculture farming, our cookbook merges diverse recipes and resources with actionable tips and solutions. In doing so, we set the table for an abundant and nourishing future that celebrates delicious food and the inherent interconnectedness of our ecosystems.
