Lecture - The Perpetual Pantry: Bridging the Gap from Ranch to City Cooking

Eugenia Bone


The bounty of fruits and vegetables grown in Colorado’s North Fork Valley where Bone summers inspired her to become a master canner, a gardener and author of the memoir/cookbook, “At Mesa's Edge.” But nine months out of the year she lives in New York City. Adapting the culinary opportunities of country living to the realities of city life was a challenge but the process led to a new way of cooking that merges the thrifty traditions of the past with the time constraints of the urban lifestyle. Two more books have come out of this study: “Well-Preserved,” a small-batch canning book that explores ways to use home-canned foods, and “The Kitchen Ecosystem,” Bone's newest book (set to be released in September 2014), which investigates the integration of recipes to create the healthiest and tastiest foods. This talk will change the way you look at the food you buy, prepare and discard, and will help you understand why the food you make tastes the way it does.


Eugenia Bone, a veteran food writer who has published in many national magazines and newspapers, is also a cookbook author. In addition to being a well loved author of the above mentioned books, as well as, “Mycophilia: Revelations From the Weird World of Mushrooms,” a popular science book about fungi (Rodale 2011), Bone has contributed to many cookbooks and literary journals, been nominated for a variety of food writing awards and participated in radio, interactive and online interviews, in addition to appearing multiple times on television. Bone teaches and lectures about food preservation. She lives in New York City and Crawford, Colorado.
