Come join us for the January Book Club where we will be discussing:
In Defence of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan.
His bracing and eloquent manifesto on food shows us how we might start making thoughtful choices that will enrich our lives and our palates and enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy. Food is the one thing that Americans hate to love and, as it turns out, love to hate. What we want to eat has been ousted by the notion of what we should eat, and it's at this nexus of hunger and hang-up that Michael Pollan poses his most salient question: where is the food in our food? What follows in In Defense of Food is a series of wonderfully clear and thoughtful answers that help us omnivores navigate the nutritional minefield that's come to typify our food culture.
