The 'Community Table: Recipes for an Ecological Food Future' book understands that food is breaching a point where we need to begin to find solutions. The future needs to be shaped through actionable progression by bringing together chefs, volunteers, and farmers to better understand the sources of food and what surrounds it.
The book is more than just a cookbook full of recipes, it questions the entire ecological food future and acts as a manual. In 2016, The Ecology Center joined Community Table Accord farmers and chefs to curate special dining experiences that focused specifically on the '10 Principles of a Regenerative Food System.' This allowed chefs and farmers to tell a story that transpired from farm to plate. Every dinner was an opportunity to tell a story that initiated dialogue around the challenges of food future and solutions for the entire system, which led to the documentation of 'Community Table: Recipes for an Ecological Food Future.'
