Noticing a theme today?

Posted in Uncategorized by Erin Dollar on January 13, 2009


Yeah, I’m halfway through Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food, and now food is all I can blog about. It’s interesting… but not exactly living up to the hype. I can’t even tell you how many times I helped customers find this book back when I worked at Bookshop, and almost everyone I’d hand it to would gleefully say something like, “He’s brilliant, you simply haaaaave to read him.”  The book is insightful, in that it really delves into how it is possible for the US to be one of the most health-obsessed (to the point of neurotic) nations on the planet, and yet still make some of the  stupidest food choices in terms of what Americans are actually eating. But yeah, not exactly earth shattering (or really even surprising) news.

The photo above is most of the ingredients you need to make Chai tea, minus the cardamom. Found the recipe on omnomicon (such a fun name for a food blog!)
