Food Rules!

When TLC Book Tours contacted me to see if I'd be interested in participating
in the blog tour of Michael Pollan's fascinating new book
"Food Rules: An Eaters Manual"
illustrated by the brilliant Maira Kalman I immediately said yes :-)
I've been a huge fan of Ms. Kalman's work for years now and I thought
it would be nice to share some of my favorite images from her books
& a few of my favorite food rules from the book with you:

Rule No.2: Don't Eat Anything Your Great Grandmother
Wouldn't Recognize As Food.
Rule No.24: When You Eat Real Food
You Don't Need Rules.
Rule No.56: Eat When You Are Hungry,
Not When You Are Bored.
Rule No.76: Place A Bouquet Of Flowers On The Table
And Everything Will Taste Twice As Good.
Rule No.78: Eat With Other People
Whenever You Can

"Food Rules: An Eaters Manual" is not only inspiring to look at
but it's also good for you ♥

Thank you for posting this! Wonderful news, I love Maira Kalman and Michael Pollan is fantastic! I read 'In Defense of Food' this summer:) I would never have thought to pair the two together. Now I have a another addition to my Christmas list. The list is growing. Enjoy your day!

Funny that you should write about this book on the same day that my copy arrived. I was not familiar with Maira Kalman's work until I read a review of the book and saw some of her artwork. I fell in love immediately with her images. I can't wait to sit down and pour over them.

It reminds me a lovely, similar foreword in Jill Dupleix's OLD FOOD.....
