"Alice Feiring has given herself a new job. After twenty years researching and writing about authentic and natural wines, and penning influential books such as
The Battle for Wine and Love (or how she saved the world from Parkerization) and Naked Wine. October 30th she debuted something entirely different for wine lovers... The Feiring Line Newsletter: The Real Wine Newsletter. The newsletter will be much more specific and will showcase a handful of articles, food and wine finds, and vineyard visits.

04 The American Lighthouse Cookbook Celebrates The Recipes, History, Customs of America’s Shorelines - Becky Sue Epstein

Lighthouse keepers were the ultimate locavores or “local eaters.” Keepers and their families dined on foods that were in season and found at their doorstep—from the sea, from their gardens, and from nearby farms and forests.
The American Lighthouse Cookbook: The Best Recipes and Stories from America’s Shorelines by food writer Becky Sue Epstein and chef Ed Jackson celebrates the dishes, history, and lore of selected lighthouses across the country. The American Lighthouse Cookbook is arranged by eight geographical regions and features 47 lighthouses chosen for their interesting backgrounds and stories. Following the story of each lighthouse is a menu for a modern-day lighthouse meal. Each of the approximately300 recipes captures the essence of the local foods available to lighthouse keepers from the 1700s through today. Some of the recipes have been contributed by lighthouse societies, inns, and individuals.
