The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food by Dan Barber (2015, 496 pages) Today’s optimistic farm-to-table food culture has 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. Barber offers a radical new way of thinking about food that will heal the land and taste good, too—where good farming and good food intersect.

Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat by Bee Wilson (2012, 352 pages) Since prehistory, humans have braved sharp knives, fire, and grindstones to transform raw ingredients into something delicious—or at least edible. But these tools have also transformed how we consume, and how we think about, our food. Blending history, science, and personal anecdotes, Wilson reveals how our culinary tools and tricks came to be and how their influence has shaped food culture today.

What She Ate: Six Remarkable Women and the Food That Tells Their Stories by Laura Shapiro (2017, 320 pages) Everyone eats, and food touches on every aspect of our lives—social and cultural, personal and political. Yet most biographers pay little attention to people’s attitudes toward food. Once we ask how somebody relates to food, we find a world of different and provocative ways to understand her. The six women discussed are Dorothy Wordsworth, Rosa Lewis, Eleanor Roosevelt, Eva Braun, Barbara Pym, and Helen Gurley Brown.

Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook by Alice Waters (2017, 320 pages) When Alice Waters opened the doors of her "little French restaurant" in Berkeley, California in 1971 at the age of 27, no one ever anticipated the indelible mark it would leave on the culinary landscape—Alice least of all. Fueled in equal parts by naiveté and a relentless pursuit of beauty and pure flavor, she turned her passion project into an iconic institution that redefined American cuisine for generations of chefs and food lovers.

Food for Thought: A Culinary Book Discussion Group reads books that explore the many ways that food expresses, affects, and enriches our lives. Discussions are held on the fourth Monday of every month, excluding December. 

New readers always welcome!  No registration required.  Books are available at the Circulation Desk.
