Acerca de


Food is an integral part of our lives: revolution, love, war and peace do not stop for us to nourish our bodies; they continue, and as our food becomes ourselves, thus it is intertwined with our thoughts, our actions political and non-political. In The Grubbag, Ita Jones writes of the expanding experience of food. She discusses rice and pilaf, the philosophy of the East, the concept of casserole, the rain forest, the beauty of sun reflecting the color of carrot water saved from the cooking of the vegetable and to be used later in a nourishing soup. She outlines plans for staying fit while living off the land; she suggests breakfasts that prepare the body wholesomely for the day's work ahead; she explores the simple joys of making gingerbread cookies with children in the warmth of a crowded kitchen. There are Christmas soups here, winter salads, whole chapters on cabbages, cannibalism, aphrodisiacs. The Grubbag began as a food column carried by the Liberation News Service, the news service of the underground press. There Ita Jones wrote about practical and political aspects of food cooking interrelated to life itself. As it expanded, quite naturally, into a book, the author was asked to describe herself. She wrote: " I have always been on the side of revolution, on the side of people struggling to break the chains that oppress them. I support wars of liberation. I am a mystic. I seek to penetrate the nature of nature. I am a poet. I seek meaning. I am part of a generation that exploded six years ago and my creative energy is part of that explosion." And that explosion is a part of the future of all of us. And one of the most rewarding aspects of it is its wholeness it's conceiving of life and the living of it as Ita Jones has written of food and politics and philosophy in The Grubbag.
