The Slow Food Sacramento Book Club is a book club for readers who enjoy food-related literature, both non-fiction and fiction. The club meets at 6:30 pm on the second Thursday of every other month at one of our member’s homes. Everyone who attends brings an appetizer to share, and we enjoy an evening of lively literary discussion. At the close of each meeting we choose our next book based on recommendations from our members. New members are always welcome!

If you are interested in participating or if you would like more information, please contact Kathleen Albiani at katonthyme@gmail.com.

Next meeting: June 12th at 6:30 pm

June: Eating on the Wild Side: The Missing Link to Optimum Health by Jo Robinson. Winner of the 2014 IACP Cookbook Award in the category of “Food Matters.”

“Ever since farmers first planted seeds 10,000 years ago, humans have been destroying the nutritional value of their fruits and vegetables. Unwittingly, we’ve been selecting plants that are high in starch and sugar and low in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for more than 400 generations.

EATING ON THE WILD SIDE reveals the solution–choosing modern varieties that approach the nutritional content of wild plants but that also please the modern palate. Based on years of scientific research and filled with food history and practical advice, EATING ON THE WILD SIDE will forever change the way we think about food.”
