The Third Plate

In 2014 I saw Dan Barber‘s TED talk about fish farming and read his opinion piece in the New York Times about What Farm-to-Table Got Wrong, so I asked for his book, The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food, for Christmas.

I wasn’t disappointed. The Third Plate is made me think – I even took notes on the book for the first time in years. I’ve been inspired to grow more diversity when I garden myself, and eat more varieties of food, not just the few that have made it into a standard North American diet. Shortly after I got home from the holidays I cooked a dinner that involved Amaranth, and there will be more interesting grains and greens on my plate for years to come.

Want to read it yourself?

Get it from one of these places and I'll receive a small kickback:
