Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen by Anna Lappe and Bryant Terry
Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen

janetf, June 28, 2006

My comment is not about the book, which sounds excellent and well worth reading, but about the publisher's blurb.

Why would the recipes only "appeal to eighteen- to forty-year-olds who are looking for fun and simple meals?" I must admit that I am, well, a few years beyond forty and still shop for locally produced and organic foods. Hey! And I love to cook.

To add insult . . . the "Publishers Weekly" review suggests that I'm not particularly hip. Well, puleeze!

"The recipes portion offers seasonal, international, health-conscious menus aimed at young, hip readers, with themes like 'Afrodiasporic Cookout' (Grilled Corn and Heirloom Tomato Salad, Shrimp and Veggie Kabobs, Fresh Green Beans, Good Grilled Okra, Ginger Beer) and 'Straight-Edge Punk Brunch Buffet (DIY)' (Spicy Tempeh Sausage Patties, French Toast with Blueberry Coulis)."

Sounds good to me! (Perhaps the publisher offers a senior discount?)
