Grow Food, Cook Food, Share Food: perspectives on eating from the past and a preliminary agenda for the future
Grow Food, Cook Food, Share Food is a practical food history lesson, an editorial about everything gone wrong with modern food, and a call to arms of the kitchen knife variety. Historian Ken Albala relates his experiences of growing, cooking, and sharing food in ways that people did in the past, ways that we have needlessly lost. He finds lessons in surprising places, including obscure seventeenth century Italian farmer/nobles, ancient statesmen, and quirky cheesemakers from centuries ago. A rare but important variety of historical activism, Grow Food, Cook Food, Share Food uses history to enrich people's lives through a greater awareness and appreciation of what they put in their bodies.
