Eat the City:

Eat the City : a tale of the fishers, trappers, hunters, foragers, slaughterers, butchers, farmers, poultry minders, sugar refiners, cane cutters, beekeepers, winemakers, and brewers who built New York By: Robin Shulman
Non-fiction: food, history 335 pages
Book Count: 55

I actually finished this book about mid-way into November, but as you can see from the NaNoWriMo winners badge to the right, I was busy with other writing at the time.  From what I remember of the book it was an unexpected journey around the NYC of today and yesterdays, where people were making their own food inside the city itself. Important things I learned included: the history of Kosher wine in New York, how to make day glo honey, and why children and anyone who physically could possibly end up pregnant at any time in the future should not eat local fish in NYC.
