Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation by Michael Pollan

“A French poet famously referred to the aroma of certain cheeses as the ‘pieds de Dieu’—the feet of god. Just to be clear: foot odor of a particularly exalted quality, but still—foot odor.”

I am listening to this on audio, so I don't know the page number of the quote. I like Pollan a lot because you don't just learn a lot about food, but he's also pretty amusing, which makes the learning go down easier. As does Drunken Goat cheese and a nice Shiraz.
