Thanks to Gina Smith, Leah McGrath

I would like to thank Mountain Xpress Food Editor Gina Smith for taking time to review my book Farm Fresh Nutrition and write a quote for its back cover.

It was great to see her staff share stories about many of the local food heroes featured in my book.

Thank you also to Leah McGrath for sharing additional pioneers in our local food scene. We are so fortunate to have such a rich local food heritage in Western North Carolina.
