Local author cooks up state’s best ingredients

Hot off the grill, "Michigan's Guide to Local Cooking' was written, designed and photographed by Susan Clemente of Spring Lake. Clemente said the book is both an informative guide to understanding and making choices about food as well as a "local food' cookbook. The author will discuss her book at Loutit District Library, 407 Columbus Ave., on Thursday, Aug. 25. The event will take place in Program Room A, beginning at 7 p.m. The book will be available to purchase following the program.

According to Clemente, we all eat — and, if we’re lucky, we enjoy it. But in today’s information age, we’re more aware than ever that we have many decisions to make about the food we prepare — from how we make purchases to how we prepare our food, she said.

Clemente said her cookbook and guide is dedicated to those who want to prepare delicious, locally grown food that satisfies a need to eat more consciously, but still stimulates palates.

In this guide, the reader will discover things about Michigan food that may never have thought about. For example: differences in farming techniques that have an impact on the environment and health, which Michigan crops are available at peak ripeness and when, and many more important bits of information that will allow you to make the best choices for your table.
