Meet Mi Ae Lipe, Author of Bounty from the Box: The CSA Farm Cookbook
An illustrator, book editor, and graphic designer, Mi Ae Lipe lived and worked in Wisconsin and Minnesota for over a decade. During this time she met Jack Hedin, owner of Featherstone Farm, one of largest community-supported agriculture (CSA) farms in southeastern Minnesota. She also saw a need for a truly comprehensive cookbook that bridges the gap between farmers and eaters.
She self-published Tastes from Valley to Bluff: The Featherstone Farm Cookbook in 2007, which featured Featherstone exclusively. The book met with great regional success and acclaim and was even used by the personal chef to the governor of Minnesota.
Several years later, she decided to expand the original cookbook to include nearly 40 new fruits and vegetables, as well as to showcase noteworthy CSA farms throughout the United States. This second book, Bounty from the Box: The CSA Farm Cookbook, was self-published in 2015.
Mi Ae now resides near Seattle, home of the world-famous Pike Place Market. She regularly indulges in a favorite hobby—eating great food.
