My friend, Anna Lappé, is in town to share the wisdom and recipes from her book, “Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen.” Here are the details from my inbox:
Monday, September 25, 6:00pm

3420 Sansom Street
Reservations required: (215) 386-9224
Anna Lappé, co-author with her mother, Frances Moore Lappé, of the national bestselling Hope’s Edge, returns to White Dog for an evening of conversation and rabble rousing. Anna’s latest book, Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen, brings the globalization and corporate control story to food rights and our health. Grub also highlights the growing food justice and sustainable agriculture movements. Not just a guidebook on what to eat, where to get it, and why, the second half of Grub showcases more than a dozen seasonal menus by co-author Bryant Terry. The tantalizing recipes come with soundtrack and wine suggestions and tips for throwing your own Grub party. The book’s mantra and re-definition of Grub: Healthy, local, sustainable food should be accessible to all of us.
I haven’t been to one of these White Dog “Table Talks,” but this is one instance where I would definitely plop down the $36 for the food and discussion (discounts for students and seniors).
