On Our Bookshelves

Everything I Want to Do Is Illegal by Joel Salatin.
Avery Says: Everyone involved in Slow Food should read this book– it explains why real farm-grown food is so important, and how politicians on both sides are making it impossible to run a farm. Just read this excerpt for a whole host of examples.

Robbing the Bees by Holley Bishop
Steph says: This book proclaims itself to be a biography of honey. I haven’t started reading it yet, but I’m very excited to start because honey is an incredibly awesome food (Did you know it’s too sweet for bacteria to live in it? You can actually put it on cuts to help them heal faster! Try it!) and, with all the bee-related issues going on in the states (Sudden Hive Deaths), one worth learning about.

    Hi,
    I’m working on an essay related to food culture in the United States and have discovered we actually do not have a defined food culture in America.

    In my English Comp class, we’re reading, “The Omnivore’s Dilemma”, by Michael Pollan and I’m researching a paper related to food culture and have discovered the “Slow Food” movement in response to America’s fast food culture.

    I’d like to contribute to your website and am currently finding companies who have a culture of providing unique, generational foods in the Midwest.

    If you have any thoughts on food culture in America, I’d enjoy hearing from you!

    Kind regards,
