On Saturday, April 7, the group will meet to discuss First Bite by Bee Wilson. What are the origins of taste? In First Bite, beloved food writer Bee Wilson draws from the latest research from food psychologists, neuroscientists, and nutritionists to reveal that our food habits are shaped by a whole host of factors, including family, culture, memory, gender, hunger, and love. An exploration of the extraordinary and surprising origins of our tastes and eating habits—from people who can only eat foods of a certain color to an amnesiac who can eat meal after meal without getting full. First Bite also shows us how we can change our palates to lead healthier, happier lives.

 

Copies of First Bite are available in various formats including regular print, large print, audiobook on CD and downloadable eBook, which may be requested online by visiting the library catalog at www.nols.org.  A limited number of copies of each book discussion selection are available at the Library the month prior to each meeting.
