 h1. Dear readers,
 I've been a fan of Jonathan Bloom and his work for awhile now. First, I took notice of his blog, where he was writing about food waste in the United States, trying to understand how it can be that nearly half the food grown in this country is wasted. It's an issue that boggles my mind, and I appreciate Jonathan's careful examination of it.

 Jonathan contributed [/articles/features/wastedfood "a post on wasted food"] to Culinate back in 2007; in 2010 he published a book, American Wasteland, which further put the issue in the spotlight. This month, American Wasteland, which won an IACP award and is now is available in paperback, is excerpted on the site. How did we go from a culture of thrift to a culture of waste? Jonathan examines.

 This Sunday is Slow Food USA's [/mix/dinnerguest/slowfoods5challenge "$5 Challenge."] Can you make supper for everyone at your table for less than the price of a fast-food meal? If you do so, there's a good chance you'll be using up every last bread crumb and kale leaf: Waste not, want not. 

 Thriftiness, as every able cook knows, can be delicious.
