I'd like to try out an online book club via this blog since it's hard to find enough similarly interested folks in the hood. Is that crazy?
If you haven't heard of this book, here's a snippet from a review from the Washington Post:
In The Omnivore's Dilemma, Michael Pollan writes about how our food is grown -- what it is, in fact, that we are eating. The book is really three in one:
The first section discusses industrial farming; the second, organic food, both as big business and on a relatively small farm; and the third, what it is like to hunt and gather food for oneself.
And each section culminates in a meal -- a cheeseburger and fries from McDonald's; roast chicken, vegetables and a salad from Whole Foods; and grilled chicken, corn and a chocolate soufflé (made with fresh eggs) from a sustainable farm; and, finally, mushrooms and pork, foraged from the wild.
If you're interested, post in the comments so I can get an idea if I should run with this. I'd like to give us a month to acquire and start reading it. For each section, I'll be posting questions to ponder and comment on later.
What think ye?
