We made a quick switch for our last book selection in our food-themed series, and decided to discuss the first section of Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma. Pollan traces a single fast-food meal back to its source in a giant cornfield in Iowa, and forward until it is pulled steaming from the bag. Along the way, we learn about contemporary agricultural practices and consumer choices, and their implications for our landscape and health.
Thursday June 8, 5:00-6:00 at Cultivate Cafe, 901 Elm St. We will talk about our next book series, which will begin in September.
Food for Thought, our book & potluck club is taking up Eating on the Wild Side by Jo Robinson.
We are learning about the wild origins of the fruits and vegetables we love, the most healthful varieties available today, and how to store and cook them to get the greatest cancer-fighting, health promoting benefits. The book is packed with information, told in an easy style, with terrific charts and summaries.
Haven’t read the book yet? No worries. Come join us. 6:00-7:00, Thurs. October 13 at Cultivate Co-op Cafe, 901 Elm St.
