Book Group: The Third Plate. Field Notes on the Future of Food, Part I (Soil) by Dan Barber
February 5, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Slow Food Russian River Book Group will be reading Part I on Soil of the book The Third Plate. Field Notes on the Future of Food (2014) by Dan Barber.
“At the heart of today’s optimistic farm-to-table food culture is a dark secret: the local food movement has failed to change how we eat. It has also offered a false promise for the future of food. Our concern over factory farms and chemically grown crops might have sparked a social movement, but chef Dan Barber reveals that even the most enlightened eating of today is ultimately detrimental to the environment and to individual health. And it doesn’t involve truly delicious food. Based on ten years of surveying farming communities around the world, Barber’s The Third Plate offers a radical new way of thinking about food that will heal the land and taste good, too.” (From Goodreads)
