New Good Food is a great candidate for a whole foods reference book to keep around the house for answering such questions as: What is that green spiky fruit and what do I do with it? How much gluten does spelt flour contain and what’s the best use for it? What fruits and vegetables are in season right now? Margaret Wittenberg has a great background in food, from owning and running a natural foods store in the late 70’s to working for Whole Foods in almost every capacity up to global vice president, to sitting on the USDA National Organic Standards Board when the standards were being created. She was also awarded the Rachel Carson Award for her work in organic agriculture, sustainability and the environment. Marion Nestle says this book is “an extraordinarily comprehensive guide to foods, ingredients, and their handling.” If you can’t trust Marion, who can you trust?
