“Earth Eats is an eye-popping, mouth-watering celebration of local food and the people who produce it.  Savor this beautiful book slowly like you would a rich helping of Chef Daniel Orr’s Persimmon and Raisin Bread Pudding. Me, I gobbled it down like a bowl of Curried Kale Chips, and it left me craving more.  With eight years of Earth Eats broadcasts under their belts, I hope Annie, Daniel, and their collaborators have another book in them. This one is a peach (locally grown, of course)!”
 — Christine Barbour, author of Home Grown Indiana

“Writer, radio host, and gardener Annie Corrigan and chef and gardener Daniel Orr whet the appetite with tips on natural growing practices, harvesting, and eating delicious and healthful food. You can almost taste the goodness in Earth Eats.”
 — Jo Ellen Meyers Sharp, The Hoosier Gardener

“Informative, insightful, and a delight to browse through from cover to cover…”
 — Midwest Book Review

“Where does this book excel? In offering farming-focused education, whether centered on an ingredient (bone broth, all-natural deer repellent); on a technique (rendering lard, cutting chicken); or on a do-it-yourself foodie project (a healthy compost heap). A good first go-green reference.”
 — BookList

“Together, Annie Corrigan and Daniel Orr form an awesome powerhouse of sustainable living knowledge and local food resources and recipes. . . . It’s a collaborative effort, featuring recipes and tips from gardeners and chefs who know their field and are ready to share their favorite tips and tricks to help anyone create a better meal, snack, or dessert or take better care of their homestead.”
 — Little Indiana

“Her mission is to stay as true as possible to choosing ingredients that are grown close by, picked at their freshest, and prepared in the home kitchen. The book also includes tips for cooking up a hearty compost heap and building te bin where it will reside, how to forage for ramps, and what to do with that bumper crop of tomatoes. . . . Lively interviews and vibrant photographs flesh out this tribute to a great radio show and our vibrant local food culture.”
 — Limestone Post Magazine
