Foodie authors

Sara MilesLocal author and editor Sara Miles, whose book Take This Bread is about her efforts to feed hundreds of families every week through a church food pantry, is profiled this week in a report on the PBS show Religion and Ethics NewsWeekly. The report shows Miles at work in the St. Gregory Food Pantry she started several years ago. (Disclosure: she’s also a good friend of mine.*)

Barbara Kingsolver, whose book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is about her family’s attempt to eat for a year only foods that were raised and produced locally, is the subject of a nice interview in today’s Chronicle. One of the foremost Bay Area proponents of eating locally — they’re called locavores! — is Jessica Prentice, who has her own book, Full Moon Feast.

Speaking of bread, SF Gate food blogger Michael Bauer tackles the high price of bread in a recent entry. And the MercuryNews also has a food blog. SFist foodie Jeremy recently interviewed a water connoisseur.
