Kitchen literacy : how we lost knowledge of where food comes from and why we need to get it back

by:Vileisis, Ann

Ask children where food comes from, and they will probably answer: "the supermarket." Ask most adults, and their replies may not be much different. Where our foods are raised and what happens to them between farm and supermarket shelf have become mysteries. How did we become so disconnected from the sources of our breads, beef, cheeses, cereal, apples, and countless other foods that nourish us every day? The answer is a sensory-rich journey through the history of making dinner, as this book takes us from an eighteenth-century garden to today's sleek supermarket aisles, and eventually to farmer's markets that are now enjoying a resurgence. The author chronicles profound changes in how American cooks have considered their foods over two centuries and delivers a powerful statement: what we don't know could hurt us. As the distance between farm and table grew, we went from knowing particular places and specific stories behind our foods' origins to instead relying on advertisers' claims. The woman who raised, plucked, and cooked her own chicken knew its entire life history while today most of us have no idea whether hormones were fed to our poultry. Industrialized eating is undeniably convenient, but it has also created health and environmental problems, including food-borne pathogens, toxic pesticides, and pollution from factory farms. Though the hidden costs of modern meals can be high, it is shown that greater understanding can lead consumers to healthier and more sustainable choices. Revealing how knowledge of our food has been lost and how it might now be regained, this book will make us think differently about what we eat.

We are what we eat : ethnic food and the making of Americans

by:Gabaccia, Donna R., 1949-

Ghulam Bombaywala sells bagels in Houston. Demetrios dishes up pizza in Connecticut. The Wangs serve tacos in L.A. How ethnicity has influenced American eating habits - and thus, the make-up and direction of the American cultural mainstream - is the story told in We Are What We Eat. It is a complex tale of ethnic mingling and borrowing, entrepreneurship and connoisseurship, of food as a social and political symbol and weapon - and a thoroughly entertaining history of our culinary tradition of multiculturalism.

The atlas of food : who eats what, where, and why

by:Millstone, Erik

This work maps every link of the food chain, from farming, production and retail to the food on our plates. It also investigates how, in an era of new technologies, globalized food trade and even plentiful supply, millions remain hungry. What we eat, where we eat, and how we eat: these questions were explored in the first edition published in 2002. Now in its second edition, it provides an up-to-date and visually appealing way of understanding the important issues relating to global food and agriculture. In mapping out broad areas of investigation, contamination of food and water, overnutrition, micronutrient deficiency, processing, farming, and trade, it offers an overview of today's food and farming concerns. The authors argue that human progress depends on resolving global inequality and creating a more sustainable food production system.

Risky foods, safer choices : avoiding food poisoning

by:Cerexhe, Peter

Risky Foods, Safer Choices confirms what many people may have suspected - the incidence of food poisoning is on the rise. Triggering such public suspicions has been an ongoing procession of horror incidents involving such foods as salami, oysters, pork rolls, fruit salad and even orange juice that have resulted in the serious illness and even death of consumers. Risky Foods, Safer Choices helps consumers avoid the possibly tragic consequences of food poisoning. Its focus is on relatively short-term health effects of good food selection rather than longer-term health effects.

The American way of eating : undercover at Walmart, Applebee's, farm fields, and the dinner table

by:McMillan, Tracie

"What if you couldn't afford nine dollar tomatoes? That was the question award-winning journalist Tracie McMillan couldn't escape as she watched the debate about America's meals unfold, one that urges us to pay food's true cost - which is to say, pay more. So in 2009 McMillan embarked on a groundbreaking undercover journey to see what it takes to eat well in America. For nearly a year, she worked, ate, and lived alongside the working poor to examine how Americans eat when price matters."--Jacket.
