and not letting the 16-year-old 'Omnivore's Dilemma' guide food-system conversations.
Terrific piece, as per the uzh :) And I'm looking forward to listening to you and Daniela: I really like her newsletter. Whenever I see Alice Waters mentioned, I always think of The Bloodroot Collective (https://www.bloodroot.com/). They were (probably along with other, less famous people) talking about seasonality, farm-to-table (if I hear that term ONE MORE TIME) and food ways way back in 1977. I don't use Amazon for all the reasons, but here's a link to one of their cookbooks: https://www.amazon.com/Political-Palate-Feminist-Vegetarian-Cookbook/dp/0960521003. Sorry for the long/linked post. Really love your work!
Cannot thank you enough for your work. Truly incredible how it always ends up resonating beyond food. Am opening a shop dedicated to kids (clothes, books, toys, art supplies, etc.) and thinking long and hard about sourcing, prices, “ethical consumption“, etc. and your work always provides so much insight.
Thank you again for helping me think differently! I am an occasional listener of Maintenance Phase myself, as a med student trying to disentangle diet-culture from health etc... but I often struggle with the idea that sustainable food and plant-based eating does not fit into a weight inclusive model... because it does! So again, thanks for your take :)
Also, S/O Joshua Specht! In addition to his book, he was an undergrad professor of mine and was the first to really make me think critically of food systems.
