I am speaking at the Con Edison Science, Technology, Energy, Environment, and Math (STEEM) Distinguished Lecturer series on “Food Politics 2020: Food Industry Influence on Nutrition Research and Practice.” It’s from 12:15-1:30 pm at the Science Building, C-201. Details are here.
It’s summer reading time, at last
I’m going to try to get caught up with some reading recommendations this week, starting with this lovely one:
Marcy, Nikiko, and David Mas Masumoto. The Perfect Peach: Stories and Recipes from the Masumoto Family Farm. Ten Speed Press, 2013.
I was asked to blurb this book and did so right away (who could possibly say no to Mas Masumoto?):
I have one word for the writing, photography, essays, and topic of this book: luscious. The Masumoto family has produced a glorious paean to the fruit they raise along with delightful ideas about what to do with an abundance of this heavenly fruit: sangria, salsa, pizza, and, of course, shortcake. I can’t wait for summer.
