Ever wonder how America’s made a journey from foods like Hamburger Helper, the first TV dinners that you heated in the conventional ovens, and Betty Crocker cake mixes to locally-raised grass fed beef, prepared meals made with organic ingredients from Whole Foods, and gluten-free vegan gourmet cupcakes? David Kamp, a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and GQ, explores the nation’s food revolution and the personalities who have steered our course in The United States of Arugula.
Join us on Tuesday, October 12, at 6pm: We’ll meet in the outdoor seating area in front of Whole Foods in Mountain Brook. Come early to grab something to eat!
One more note: We’re starting to consider titles for our 2011 book selection list. If you’ve got any suggestions, leave a comment.
