Free download ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ê Barbara Kingsolver Barbara Kingsolver ê 8 Free read Summary Animal Vegetable Miracle A Year of Food Life Author Barbara Kingsolver and her family abandoned the industrial food pipeline to live a rural life vowing that for one year they'd on. Barbara Kingsolver has long been one of my favorite writers but this most recent book was a bit of a mixed bag for me The book covers the year she and her family spent eating only food they had either grown themselves or purchased from local farmers personally known to them Kingsolver s skill as a storyteller is undiminished and there are some wonderful sections as she relates their adventures plotting how to foist some of their bumper zucchini harvest off on unsuspecting neighbors and how they helped their new turkey crop re learn the lost art of natural copulation The book also succeeded in teaching me uite a bit I didn t know about food and gardening As someone who was raised on heavily processed foods I was fascinated to learn the biological secrets of root vegetables how a mild mannered novelist harvests chickens at home and how much better food can taste when it hasn t been subject to the rigors of corporate food production Her chapter on asparagus helped me understand why the tough road hardened variety found in most conventional stores is only a pale shadow of an organically grown stalk picked just hours earlier her description of the succulent magic of ls made me want to take up mushroom hunting In these celebrations of the pleasures of fresh locally grown in season produce Kingsolver was very effective in inspiring me to think about how to plan my menus around what is seasonally available I ll be adding her sweet potato uesadilla recipe to my menu this week and I m looking forward to trying out her dried tomato pesto On the down side Ms Kingsolver s charming storytelling is laced with a rather heavy dose of preaching I have no doubt that the food monoculture promoted by corporate America has had devastating effects on our health taste buds and environment and the loss of crop diversity these practices have created has made us very vulnerable as a population These are important issues that need to be talked about But part of the reason I ve admired Ms Kingsolver s past writing is because she has always woven her political views so seamlessly into her stories that in reading her books I always learned new things without feeling like I had been force fed someone else s opinions That was not the case with this book The first uarter is particularly thick with commentary on the evils of our current food system More than once I found myself slogging through sections that left me feeling guilty about the food currently in my kitchen than inspired to adopt her suggestions This tone made the read much less effective for me than it would have been had she focused primarily on the very real value her family gained from choosing to forgo convenience in favor of such fantastically delicious food
