Our Current CTB read: United States of Arugula, by David Kamp

7 04 2012

Hello everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed our previous sweet read and you are ready for something more…robust:

United States of Arugula: The Sun Dried, Cold Pressed, Dark Roasted, Extra Virgin Story of the American Food Revolution by   David Kamp.

From the author’s site: United States of Arugula is a book about one of the happiest developments of our time: the quantum leap forward in food choice, food quality, and culinary sophistication in America in the last sixty years or so. The book examines not only the social forces that effected this transformation, but the visionaries who changed American food for the better: among them James Beard, Julia Child, Craig Claiborne, and Alice Waters.” We should all find plenty of inspiration to cook from this fun look at the world of food.

The deadline for your entry for United States of Arugula is Monday, May 28th.

So please either email me at: jdimopoulosAT foodjunkie.eu, or leave your post comment here.

Thank you and Happy Easter,


Jo (foodjunkie.eu)
