by Dan Barber

I went on a reading binge about eating and the food industry several years ago, working through some mainstream books by Michael Pollan and Mark Bittman, alongside some deeper theological reads by Wendell Berry, Ellen Davis and Norman Wirzba.

It all changed the way I view food, though it probably didn’t change my own eating habits enough.

I still have interest in the topic, and I’m especially aware of Dan Barber after he was featured in one of my favorite episodes of Chef’s Table.

The Third Place was a good addition to my prior reading, though some of it was lost on me as we talked a lot about fish. I’ve never liked fish. Yet another area of food for me to be challenged in because, as I understand it, fish should clearly be a growing part of our diets for sustainability sake.
