Edible in Paper of Record

With less than 2 months to go to the caucuses and exactly a year to the election, though, right now it belongs to the Des Moines Register. And in the big thick Sunday edition today, splashed all over the cover of the "Life" section, is <a href="http://www.desmoinesregister.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071104/ENT02/711040302&lead=1">an above-the-fold feature</a> on our <a href="http://www.edibleiowa.com/" target="_blank">humble little magazine</a>, written by DMReg staff writer Tom Perry.

Following some expansive interviews with clients, writers and friends, as well as with Edible Communities co-founder <a href="http://www.ediblecommunities.com/portal/carole-topalian.htm?ed=5" target="_blank">Carole Topalian</a> and <a href="http://www.edibleiowarivervalley.com/pages/about.htm">Edible Iowa River Valley owners</a> Wendy Wasserman and yours truly, Mr. Perry has constructed an in-depth profile of our humble little venture in the Hawkeye State.

Now this all came about because Mr. Perry was intrigued by a piece Wendy had written (<a href="http://www.ediblechesapeake.com/content/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=14&Itemid=0#electorate" target="_blank">here in pdf</a>) for our compatriots at <a href="http://www.ediblechesapeake.com/content/index.php">Edible Chesapeake</a>, about where all the "politicos" flooding our state should look for great food in Iowa.

The other "election" tie-in is what we called in this issue "<a href="http://www.ediblecommunities.com/limesurvey/index.php?sid=48953&lang=en" target="_blank">Iowa's Big Choice</a>." No, we don't mean that one. We mean the 2nd Annual Local Heroes Awards. This is where we recognize the people here who have gone above and beyond the call in their efforts to produce, support and promote great local and artisanal food in Iowa. You can cast your vote <a href="http://www.ediblecommunities.com/limesurvey/index.php?sid=48953&lang=en">here.</a> Not from these parts? That's OK, Edible Communities has your back, with other Local Hero awards going out all over the country, and in a couple parts of Canada. You can find the one closest to you by clicking <a href="http://www.ediblecommunities.com/portal/local-hero-awards.htm" target="_blank">here</a>, then do you civic duty and vote! (The deadline is Dec. 15th).
