Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: Our Year of Seasonal Eating

by Barbara Kingsolver
£12.99   paperback  Faber and Faber (2008)

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: Our Year of Seasonal Eating by Barbara Kingsolver Bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver's riveting new book will open your eyes in a hundred different ways to an old truth: you are what you eat.
 
'This is the story of a year in which we made every attempt to feed ourselves animals and vegetables whose provenance we really knew...and how our family was changed by one year of deliberately eating food produced in the same place where we worked, loved our neighbours, drank the water, and breathed the air.'
 
With characteristic poetry and pluck, Barbara Kingsolver and her family sweep readers along on their journey away from the industrial food pipeline. They opt instead for a rural life in which they vow to eat only food raised locally, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it. Their good-humoured search yields surprising discoveries about turkey sex life and over-zealous courgette plants, and ultimately leads them to a new way of thinking about eating - one in which the food is not only better for the environment, but tastes better too.
 
Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle makes a passionate case for putting the kitchen back at the centre of family life.
