Featured as one of our recent book displays in the second floor non-fiction area, "Food for Thoght" provides both intellectual nourishment and, in this case, inspiration for a literal feast. Food is so much a part of our daily lives and our cultures, and these books explore the food itself, it's history and it's meaning. As Mark Kurlansky wrote:
"Food is about agriculture, about ecology, about man's relationship with nature, about the climate, about nation-building, cultural struggles, friends and enemies, alliances, wars, religion. It is about memory and tradition and, at times, even about sex."
