Book Quotes: New Eaters

Getting back to my goals, a quote for Friday. Pollan, from Omnivore’s Dilemma:

…a successful local food economy implies not only a new kind of food producer, but a new kind of eater as well, one who regard finding, preparing, and preserving food as one of the pleasures of life rather than a chore. …This is a consumer who understands — or remembers — that, in Wendell Berry’s memorable phrase, “eating is an agricultural act.” He might have added that it’s a political act as well.
