Recommended for: foodies, parents

A memoir that combines a parenting and food focus. This turns out to be just my style. I loved both Rehak's stories of cooking in the kitchen at applewood (and her field trips) and the interspersed bits about her finicky toddler. Though a couple of recipes are included at the end of each chapter, this isn't really a cookbook, nor should you expect statistics and footnotes. This definitely belongs in the memoir category--she spent a year working out her own family's best choices for local/organic/sustainable food...or not, and wrote a book about it.
