I am no stranger to local food as my husband is an urban farmer, but there was a lot of interesting information in this book and of course Kingsolver's writing made for a great story too.

Love social science books like this! A look at American food culture including workplace food days, meal plans like Hello Fresh, delivery apps like GrubHub, and the rise of customized ordering: Chipotle anyone? Very engaging and fun read. Enjoyed it a lot. (Pictured is homemade olive oil cake with fresh fruit & whipped cream.)

Pretty but just a compilation of previously published “vintage” recipes. You‘d be better off finding an old copy of the original Betty Crocker cookbooks. I did take pics of a couple of recipes since I don‘t currently have a copy of the original #cookbook. 🍽🍽🍽 #librarylove

1. Jim Gaffigan is amazing.
2. I was born in this world and now I‘m not just a person. Love!!!
3. Summer sports (except figure skating!)
4. I would give a compliment to every kitten for reading instead of watching tv all the time!

This book is just delicious. A series of anecdotes about family and food memories and all so beautifully, tantalisingly described. You learn a lot about Ruth‘s childhood and early adulthood, and although she has a privileged start in life, she goes through a lot and has her eyes wide open throughout. It amazed me to read about the recycling and environmental concerns she had in the 60s - a flash forward to the things we‘re still talking about now!

I checked out the audiobook via the library and just finished it today. I'm running out tomorrow after work to pick it up in hardback, it's that important of a book. This is not necessarily narrative-driven, but the incredible amount of research, world-wide travel and interviews, and her humbleness is exactly the kind of nonfiction we need to help educate people.

My review of the book is in the comments, I just really needed to gush first.

taraWritesSci Takes on the polarizing camps in food and redirects everyone's attention to a 3rd way that incorporates the best of both sides. Little is honest about her own hangups on the indoctrination of certain food movements, and the reality of what it's going to take to feed the entire world in an equitable manner. She travels across the globe to show how local peoples are already ahead in adapting both traditions and technology to improve food statements. 3d

My first time overcoming my anxiety about baking in my new(ish) flat! I hate shared kitchens, I‘m not sure why, and it‘s so hard making myself cook. I‘m lucky my boyfriend doesn‘t mind cooking for me as I do all the laundry but I really hope this one going so well will mean I feel able to do it more in future. It‘s a practice for his grandads birthday cake at the weekend.

Louise That looks delicious! 😍 5d
