To escape the adverse effects of consuming industrial processed food, society must learn fundamental cooking skills once more. The history of the pecan, as much an American nut as any, is one of hardiness and adaptability to new situations and tastes. A look into the politics of food makes it clear how and why Americans no longer have the right to grow and eat what they want. The cultural politics of ethical eating and dietary habits are explored in this thought-provoking passage.
