Win This Book!
In honor of the Rock Center Farmers Market starting off this week, I’ve got 5 copies of David Kamp’s “The United States of Arugula” to give away. It’s a great book about the history of cooking and eating in America, and the ongoing revolution that’s changing the way this country looks at food. (It has also got a few pages on how Barry Benepe founded the Greenmarket program that brought Farmers Markets to New York City in the 70s.) To win the book, post an early childhood (or later if you didn’t discover good food until after college) memory of food discovery as a comment below.
I remember the first time my dad took me to a sushi restaurant. I was probably 9 or 10 years old (it was the mid 80s), and I still remember looking down at those circular rice things and thinking “This is the weirdest Chinese food I have ever eaten.” It is meals like that which made me into the fatso you know today.
Now let’s hear your story. Post it as a comment below. I will contact the winners via email (so make sure to fill out the email field. Don’t worry, your email address won’t show up on the site.) If you don’t want to wait, the paperback version of the book comes out on Tuesday. Click here to order it now.
