The beginning

It all began with Jon's inspired purchase of a food processor.

We were throwing a housewarming party for our new place, and we just dove into the possibilities, whipping up all sorts of dips for the chips we'd bought at Trader Joe's and the crudite we'd cut up from a FreshDirect delivery.

But, really, it began with Michael Pollan. We'd both read The Omnivore's Dilemma, which confirmed our suspicions about the agricultural-industrial complex, but we'd recently borrowed a copy of his new book, In Defense of Food, and were starting to take steps toward reclaiming our diets.

Now, as we make an attempt to cook and eat at home more often -- despite living amidst the world's richest concentration of restaurants -- we plan to document that effort and show how it's possible to "eat food, not too much, mostly plants" even here in the heart of New York City.
