9780571233571: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: Our Year of Seasonal Eating

"We wanted to live in a place that could feed us: where rain falls, crops grow, and drinking water bubbles up right out of the ground." Barbara Kingsolver opens her home to us, as she and her family attempt a year of eating only local food, much of it from their own garden. Inspired by the flavours and culinary arts of a local food culture, they explore many a farmers market and diversified organic farms at home and across the country. With characteristic warmth, Kingsolver shows us how to put food back at the centre of the political and family agenda. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is part memoir, part journalistic investigation, and is full of original recipes that celebrate healthy eating, sustainability and the pleasures of good food.

From AudioFile:

Eaters must understand that how we eat determines how the world is used. They will with the help of this book from the Kingsolver-Hopp family. And why not make the narration of this book a family affair--since its a chronology of a year of conscious food choices involving abstinence from industrial food? The process includes vegetable growing and canning, cheese-making, poultry-raising and -slaughtering, and locovore shopping. Hopp, Kingsolvers husband, supplies scientific asides and practical suggestions on how to make better use of the world around us. Daughter Camille suggests recipes and meal plans. The book is so jam-packed with information that listeners will want to take notes. Theres a Web site, as well. And the farmyard sound effects are not to be missed. D.P.D.
