"Seed to Plate honors the practical side of growing Indigenous heirloom seeds to fruition. Lois demonstrates how to respect the whole life cycle of these foods by processing and cooking them with reverence, so when they end up on our plate and in our bellies, they are true medicine. This book honors Native American food wisdom and transforms the way we think about daily nourishment.” —from the foreword by Melissa K. Nelson, (Anishinaabe/Métis [Turtle Mountain Chippewa]), Professor of Indigenous Sustainability, Arizona State University; President of the Cultural Conservancy"
"Seed to Plate, Soil to Sky is more than a beautiful and empowering book. It is a landmark in the culinary world, helping us remember timeless traditions and put them to use at a time when healthful traditions are needed most. It is a treasury of historical context, key botanical information, and practical tips for the kitchen that will allow us to use the bounty of nature for health and vitality."—Neal D.
