Who started the organic food craze that now is a cornerstone of popular American eating? Who is responsible for getting whole-food staples like sprouts, tofu, yogurt, brown rice, and whole-grain bread onto every grocery and home shelf? It’s more than a corporate marketing effort, and although it’s a way of life for many, it wasn’t always like this. Food journalist (and former line cook!) Jonathan Kauffman digs deep into funky food history in his new book Hippie Food, shedding light on the cultural revolutionaries who shaped a more idealistic and communal way of life and food in the United States.

Food is deeply woven into our cultural history: join Kauffman as he shares a hippie food chapter, including stories about cults, the Summer of Love, and a coast to coast journey of culture and cuisine.
