In celebration of Earth Day and as part of the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition's work to reduce food waste in our community, the Beit Am Sustainability Committee is hosting a discussion of Tamar Adler's An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace. Somewhere between Essay and Cookbook, Adler teaches us to eat frugally, healthily, and deliciously. We will discuss 4 selected chapters. Please email for a PDF of the reading. 

Read the publisher description, quoted from

"In this meditation on cooking and eating, Tamar Adler weaves philosophy and instruction into approachable lessons on feeding ourselves well. An Everlasting Meal demonstrates the implicit frugality in cooking. In essays on forgotten skills such as boiling, suggestions for what to do when cooking seems like a chore, and strategies for preparing, storing, and transforming ingredients for a week’s worth of satisfying, delicious meals, Tamar reminds us of the practical pleasures of eating. She explains what cooks in the world’s great kitchens know: that the best meals rely on the ends of the meals that came before them. With that in mind, she shows how we often throw away the bones, skins, and peels we need to make our food both more affordable and better. She also reminds readers that almost all kitchen mistakes can be remedied. Summoning respectable meals from the humblest ingredients, Tamar breathes life into the belief that we can start cooking from wherever we are, with whatever we have."
