As I plan on making a lot of lifestyle changes this summer, I’d like to read more. While I learn about the Dane County Farmers’ Market and all the food Wisconsin has to offer, I’m interested in gaining a broader knowledge about food and the culture that surrounds it.
I started a summer reading list a few weeks ago. A list of all sorts of books (mostly food ones, a few sciences ones) that I want to dive into this summer. In no particular order, here it is.
- The United States of Arugula by David Kamp
- Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi
- An Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan
- The Seasoned Vegetarian by Simon Rimmer
- The Conscious Kitchen by Alexandra Zizzu
- The Art of Eating In by Cathy Erway
- A Cook’s Tour by Anthony Bourdain
- The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba
- A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson – I’ve already read this book and it is my all-time favorite. Excited to read it again.
- How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman – I bought the iPhone version of this book. It is fantastic!
- Food Matters by Mark Bittman
- Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver, Steven L. Hopp and Camille Kingsolver
- Hands on Environmentalism by Brent Haglund and Tom Still – Still is a past instructor of mine.
Any other suggestions?
