One of the first titles I chose to purchase for the library was The Gastronomica Reader by Darra Goldstein. At lunchtime one day, I read one of the essays from this collection in “The UTNE Reader” (an awesome magazines my library subscribes to. I highly recommend it!)
The essay was fascinating and I immediately put The Gastronomica Reader on my wishlist for the library. I love the cover image! I haven’t had a chance to flip through this book more just yet, but I think it would be of interest to anyone interested in sociology, cooking, cultural history, green living, ethics, environmentalism; or just anyone who likes to cook or eat!
