Slow Cooked: Marion Nestle's New Memoir
When an icon and role model in food policy and food studies writes a memoir, after writing more than a dozen policy-heavy books --you might expect it to be serious. Even a little preachy. But you’d be wrong here. Marion Nestle’s telling of her life story is juicy and delicious. Eminently readable. In addition to her own journey, it is a surprisingly candid reflection about the difficulties of a serious and professional woman in academia coming of age in the 50’s and 60’s. Married at 19? Really Marion? She’s quite a woman and it is quite a tale. Let’s hear from Marion Nestle about her memoir – Slow Cooked.
