Summer Food Reading: Compelling, Inspiring, Fun, Nutritious!
By Kerry Trueman
Here's a trio of new books that offer some sustainably minded summer reading:
- Dan Imhoff's newly revised Food Fight: The Citizen's Guide to the Next Farm Bill, a nifty paperback filled with compelling graphics, charts, and analysis that will get you up to speed on this eternally perplexing piece of legislation;
- Greenhorns: 50 Dispatches from the New Farmers' Movement , a compilation of essays by young farmers who offer firsthand accounts of the risks and rewards they've encountered in pursuit of their agrarian dreams;
- Sandor Katz's comprehensive, definitive guide to all things fermented, The Art of Fermentation, which covers an astonishing range of fermented foods and promises to become an instant classic, with a foreword by Michael Pollan (who also wrote the forward for Food Fight).
