In Response to: Great Tastes

Thank you for your interesting articles on Princetonians and food in PAW’s Food Issue Nov. 19. Eric Schlosser ’81 spoke at Reunions in May 2006. I told him that until I read his book Fast Food Nation, the scariest book I had encountered was Deliverance. Also, though he is not an alumnus, no discussion of food and Princeton is complete without at least a mention of Professor Peter Singer’s remarkable book, The Ethics of What We Eat (with Jim Mason, Rodale Inc. 2006). This thought-provoking work should be on the reading list of anyone who is concerned about the safety, nutritional value, and/or the ethics of our food choices.
