5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Illustrated & Fun, 18 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Forget celebrity chefs if you're trying to entice your teenagers into the kitchen. This book is comical, clear, informative and plain delightful.

It's good for the giggles alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable little pocket book, 22 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pollan's new book is zippy, short, and very attractive. I find myself quoting from it regularly.

Nothing esoteric or windy. Just some good old fashioned sense mixed with a little melody.

I'm a big fan.

Very affordable in comparison to the usual tomes of nutritional bibles on sale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revelatory, as always. Outstanding journalism, 11 Jan. 2011
Felicity Lawrence is an exceptional reporter.

Who else has the courage, tenacity and erudition to publish such a book?

Please read it. And her column in The Guardian.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seaweed is high in calcium - essential for strong bones, 27 Dec. 2010
As a practicing nutritionist, I was indecently excited to find this book.

Seaweed, also referred to as sea veg, is seriously nutritious. Here's how to use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and wise, 27 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Itsa Cookbook (Paperback)
Very fond of Domini Kemp's style of writing. It's like having her on your shoulder in the kitchen. The lamb and chickpea soupy stew is outstanding, and worth purchasing the book for this recipe alone.

I must say her broadbean hummus is unreasonably tasty too.

It would be a great shame if this book did not find your kitchen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as my old Moulinex, 4 Dec. 2010
Disappointed with this juicer. I've changed the blade 3 times in 10 months, with the hope that the pulp would not be as wet. When the pulp is wet, you spend a lot more on fruit & veg per glass. Considering I buy organic, cheap blades like this one will push your grocery bill up.

Keep looking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure, 1 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Cornucopia at Home (Hardcover)
If you promise yourself to do two recipes a week, your health has simply got to improve! Such an easy way of making effective dietary changes without having to change your taste buds.

Yes it's expensive, but if only for the soups, it's still worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars thrilling and chilling, 2 Dec. 2009
This review is from: The Corporation [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
A scorching spotlight is shone on the pervasive multinational corporation, with its unrelenting rise to power and ensuing consequences for society (and our food chain). Sounds horrendous, but it's actually very thought-provoking, stylish, and sweepingly informative.

Includes interviews with Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, Naomi Klein, Milton Friedman, Howard Zinn and Vandana Shiva. Thrilling and chilling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can we trust what we eat?, 2 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations who put profit before consumer health and before the livelihood of our country's own farmers. Unrelenting pressure to make cheaper produce has forced farmers all over the world to compromise the integrity of their crops and livestock, tampering with nature and basic morality.

This DVD asks us the disturbing question of whether we can trust what we eat?

Track what is happening to our food, from field to fork. The Future of Food presents an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind genetically engineered, adulterated and patented foods that have quietly filled our grocery stores. It consequently exposes the complex web of market and political forces that now dictate and control our food chain. Also features Michael Pollan.

A huge thumbs up on entertainment value, without being preached at.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compulsory viewing for anyone who eats, 2 Dec. 2009
Not dogmatic or didactic which many DVD's and documentaries of its ilk can be.

Food Inc is an incredibly insightful and informative exposé on our supermarket products. The most popular ones anyway.

It reveals how complicated, compromised and ethically distasteful the once simple process of growing crops and raising livestock has become. In doing so, it illustrates the perils of consumer apathy.

We can change our food supply. After all, it is we the consumer who creates demand.

Do your health, your planet and your conscience a favour, and buy someone this DVD for Christmas along with a request to "pass it on." The best New year's resolution you could make for 2010!
