With compelling articles and comprehensive sources, Prentice writes evocatively about our Western shift in diet and the backlash with our health. This book does a good job of balancing the dietary warnings with celebrations of ancient food and the communal practice of collecting and cooking it. She takes examples from all over the world, and clearly spent a long time researching methods and practices of worldwide cultures with regard to certain foods. The recipes look great, and I can't wait to try some of them out- I love when I find recipes that aren't the same thing I've always done, but with a slight variation. She actually provides guidelines on lacto-fermentation, and wort drinks. How cool is that?!

If you're contemplating becoming a locavore, growing your own food, trying to get in touch with a healthier and more holistic diet, or have some health problems that you want to try treating with nutrition, I recommend this book. Also, if you're curious about the changes in human diet, the foods that seem to unite us as a species, and some definitely non-Western flavor combinations, I recommend this book
