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 cookbook Dishing Up The Dirt and the food blog of the same name. 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 cookbooks The Forest Feast, The Forest Feast for Kids, The Forest Feast Gatherings, and The Forest Feast Mediterranean, as well as 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.
