What to Read

As the seasons change and greenmarkets go more brown than green across the city with pears, parsnips, and pumpkins beginning to show their face among what was summer’s gloriously green bounty, you may be inclined to read up on the food movements that have taken center stage and made farmers markets as chic as skinny jeans. There’s no better authority on all things brown or green than the women who have helped shape public consciousness on eating seasonally and locally, and a favorite blogger who argues that “Seasonal is the New Pink”:

this week: Seasonal is the New Pink (An Essay with visits to BLT Market, Park Avenue Summer and Blue Hill Stone Barns), by The Amateur Gourmet

this season: Alice Waters and Chez Panisse: The Romantic, Impractical, Often Eccentric, Ultimately Brilliant Making of a Food Revolution, by Thomas McNamee

to build your library: Real Food: What to Eat and Why, by Nina Planck

One Response to “What to Read”

    Real Food is one of my favorite books, although I have to admit I don’t always live up to her expectations! I still can’t believe how hard it is to get traditionally farmed foods, even here in Kansas. Love your blog!
