My Organic Life: How a Pioneering Chef Helped Shape the Way We Eat Today (Knopf) by Nora Pouillon

A sparkling memoir. . . . Much more than a memoir of one woman’s career in food, the book also provides a picture of the growth of the organic food movement in the U.S…. Pouillon’s story is also a feminist one, showing a woman with young children dealing with a failed marriage, working successfully in a male-dominated business and helping other women to succeed in it. An inspiring account and great fun to read.
–Kirkus Reviews

As the founder of America’s first organic restaurant, and a tireless advocate of local food systems (not to mention a brilliant chef), Nora Pouillon is one of the pioneers of the Food Movement.
