Sliced fennel, raspberries, cherry tomatoes and conversation

Cover of

Guided by Susan Lampert Smith and her husband Matt who brought delicious food from their farm "Blue Valley Gardens", the Go Big Read book discussion Thursday night at Sequoya of Michael Pollan's book In Defense of Food was a lively foray into corporate versus small farms, school lunch programs, what we ate when growing up, how we eat now and what we can do to somehow meet Pollan's proposal to "eat food, not too much, mostly plants".

I had a great time at this book group and it was a nice idea for the discussion leaders to bring food from their garden for us to snack on. The cherry tomatoes tasted like sunshine!
