One of the most fascinating books I read last year: Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals. One of the best so far this year: his new book, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. Three cheers for sensible eating--real food, locally grown whenever possible, in a wide variety of textures and colors, shared with family and friends.
I took the picture under "this blog" (upper left) last summer after an early morning trip to the farmers' market. The picture with this post (below) shows what we got one week from our CSA farm, Genesis Growers.
I'm fantasizing, of course. It's been snowing all afternoon, and I've been cooking a lot with dried beans and root vegetables.
