Coming Home to Eat: The Pleasures and Politics of Local Foods by Gary Paul Nabhan
Coming Home to Eat: The Pleasures and Politics of Local Foods

innersmile, June 26, 2011

I like this title - a double entendre. "Coming home to eat" in a literal sense: Coming home and eating in our own kitchens. We have been a nation that eats out or exists on fast food and we need to stay home and spend time cooking and having family life center around getting together to share meals. Then there's the larger meaning of "coming home to eat": Eating locally, seasonally, buying from small organic sustainable farms, making sure our land is taken care of so that it can take care of us. I haven't rated this book because I haven't yet read it, but I will - it's subject is important. What and how we eat may not be the source of all our societal ills, but it's making us too sick to do anything about them. We have no guts, literally.
