America’s Food: What You Don’t Know About What You Eat

Did you know Americans eat their own weight in food additives each year? That a third of our grown fruits and vegetables are discarded for “aesthetic” reasons?

Bottomfeeder: How To Eat Ethically In A World Of Vanishing Seafood

Just when we’ve learned that omega-3-rich seafood is one of the healthiest food choices we can make, the news seems to be full of stories on mercury-laden tuna, antibiotics-contaminated shrimp and endangered, pirate-caught fish stocks. Bottomfeeder examines how out of control pollution, unregulated fishing practices and climate change affect what ends up on our plate. The author provides us with a guide to selecting seafood based on what fish are best for our environment, our seas and our bodies. A must-read for any seafood enthusiast. (Note: For a freebie on sustainable seafood, see Seafood Watch.)

Milk: The Surprising Story of Milk Through the Ages

Part cookbook—with more than 120 enticing recipes—part culinary history, part inquiry into the evolution of an industry, Milk is a book that will forever change the way we think about dairy products. The author explores yogurt and kindred fermented products made primarily from sheep’s and goats’ milk, which soured as a natural consequence of climate, then journeys through lands that traditionally only consumed milk fresh from the cow. This illuminating book will be a favorite with anyone who loves dairy or is interested in food histories. If you like to drink your milk (or eat your cheese), you’ll enjoy the scholarship here.
