Food creates community

This first edition of COMMONS has a theme of heritage, tradition, memory, and innovation. The local food community revealed in its pages is one of genuine collaboration and hard work that embodies the idea that a rising tide lifts all ships. We are so excited to share this publication with our friends and neighbors, both in the Charlottesville community and beyond.

Charlottesville COMMONS 2013 is an 8.5″ x 11″, 152 page, soft-bound book filled with stories, full-color photographs, and 30 recipes from local chefs, farmers, growers, bakers and food enthusiasts. It was created by Andrea Hubbell and Sarah Cramer Shields, photographers and co-creators of Beyond the Flavor, as well as our editor, Jenny Paurys.
