MN Reads: Beth Dooley, The Perennial Kitchen: Simple Recipes for a Healthy Future
Chris Harwood speaks with Beth Dooley, a Minneapolis-based chef and columnist who is the author of The Perennial Kitchen: Simple Recipes for a Healthy Future, with photography provided by Mette Nielsen, published in 2021 by University of Minnesota Press. The book gathers recipes made from ingredients that are more locally and regionally-sourced, and that "embrace regenerative agriculture, the method of growing small and large crops with ecological services."
Dooley is the author or co-author of many cookbooks, including Minnesota's Bounty: The Farmers Market Cookbook, The Northern Heartland Kitchen, Savory Sweet: Simple Preserves from a Northern Kitchen (with Mette Nielsen), and The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen (with Sean Sherman).
MN Reads is produced at KUMD with funding provided in part by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
