Selected Reviews:

Publisher’s Weekly: ” “Earnest and anecdotal yet scientific, this exploration of revived forms of artisanal entrepreneurialism tries to capture the sense of value and nostalgia that accompanies the creation of handmade foods…. Cope offers much that is pertinent and thought provoking.”

Cookbook Slut: “Cope’s [book] analyzes why exactly this kind of cooking is so alluring….  [and] is a gentle reminder that a story does have value.”
