American terroir : savoring the flavors of our woods, waters, and fields, by Rowan Jacobsen
Wonderful book about savoring American artisan foods. This made me want to eat everything it talked about, especially the moules frites on Prince Edward Island and the Vermont cheese and the Totten oysters and, oh, everything! This was beautifully written, too- one of the best books I've read all year.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
