Small Batch

Pickles, Cheese, Chocolate, Spirits, and the Return of Artisanal Foods
by Suzanne Cope

 
Artisanal foods are making a comeback as more and more people seek to stock their pantries, and their bellies, with handcrafted or locally grown and made foods. Specialty markets and sections at grocery stores are catering to this new desire for the special, the unique, the carefully made foods.




Small Batch: Pickles, Cheese, Chocolate, Spirits and the Return of Artisanal Foods colorfully details the landscape of the newest wave of the artisanal food revolution by looking at four foods that whet our appetites for specialty..

Considering the history and the cultural issues surrounding the resurgence of craft food, including the evolving definition of terroir, the importance of narrative in valuing artisanal food, and the way that these present food trends connect with—and upend—their rich history, Small Batch: Pickles, Cheese, Chocolate, Spirits and the Return of Artisanal Foods seeks to define and update the term "artisanal" and give insight into the influences, challenges, and identity of food artisans today.
