I really enjoyed reading Full Moon Feast. Food ad the Hunger for Connection, by Jessica Prentice. It tells the origin/evolution of food and food processing/cooking/eating/storing. I found it very useful to look at the food from a different standpoint. This book makes me feel good and pushes me even more towards buying local&seasonal and cooking "from scratch" as much as possible. It also reconciles me with eating some kind of good fat (whole milk for example), which I strongly attempted to avoid in the past. It is funny to think that I have discovered the pleasure of healthy and savory food here in the United States!
