Kitchen Literacy – How We Became So Ignorant About Our Food

Kitchen Literacy Cover

Here’s a quick “heads up” to a book that looks like it provides a perfect compliment to what I wrote about recently in “The Local Food Economy and Health”  Part1, Part2 and Part 3.

It’s called “Kitchen Literacy – How We Lost Knowledge of Where Our Food Comes From and Why We Need To get It Back”

According to critics, the author Ann Vileisis, has researched and written a veritable treatise on the subject.

I acknowledge that I haven’t read the book myself, but, after researching and preparing this report, it’s definitely going on my list of books to read.
