Description
Always a passionate cook and food lover, Melanie Rehak became a more thoughtful eater as well after reading Michael Pollan and Wendell Berry, as she tells us in this joyful memoir with recipes. But after the birth of her son Jules, she wanted to know more. What mattered most, organic or local? Who were these local farmers? Was it possible to be an ethical consumer and still revel in the delights of food? And why wouldn't Jules eat anything, organic or not? Joining the kitchen staff at Applewood, a Brooklyn restaurant committed to local food, Rehak harvested potatoes, milked goats, sorted beans, and learned what to eat and why—and that even the most dedicated organic farmers sometimes serve their children frozen chicken fingers.

"Hilarious, moving and full of life, Eating for Beginners restores joy to its rightful place at the dinner table. Melanie Rehak's absorbing journey will appeal not only to people who want to spend less time worrying about what to cook, eat, or feed a family, but to those of us who are looking for a way to feel more confident in all of our choices. Whether she's picking kale or picking Cheerios off the floor, Rehak is always excellent company."—Gretchen Rubin
