Governing the Commons by Elinor Ostrom
Governing the Commons: The Evolution of Institutions for Collective Action by Elinor Ostrom (296 pages, paperback; pub. 2015 by Cambridge University Press)
Not a culinary book by any means, but a framework for thinking about systemic management of resources, like food, beyond states or markets. Less "what can be bought or sold?" and more "what do we need to live?"
