Thirty years ago Frances Moore Lappe started a revolution in the way Americans think about food and hunger. Now Frances and her daughter, Anna, pick up where Diet for a Small Planet left off. Together, they set out on an around-the-world journey to explore the greatest challenges we face at a new millennium. Traveling to Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe, they discovered answers to the most urgent issue of our time: Whether we are able to transcend today's consumerism and the isolation of me-first capitalism and find the paths that each of us can follow ti heal our lives and the planet.
Featuring nearly seventy recipes from celebrated vegetarian culinary pioneers--including Alice Waters, Mollie Katzen, Laurel Robertson, Nora Pouillon, and Anna Thomas--this volume highlights true trailblazers engaged in social, environmental, and economic transformations.
