Introduction, or L is for Love
I once bought a bag of granola in California made with lavender and love. There were other ingredients listed on the package but “love” came first. I consumed the granola while standing on the banks of Tomales Bay. It didn’t taste like love. It tasted more like going to a fancy party where, because the light isn’t so great in the bathroom, you eat dried flowers by mistake.
I am here to tell you, there is such a thing as too much lavender. Love, on the other hand, that’s a whole other bag of granola.

School Lunch Expose
Revenge of the Lunch Lady is Jane Black's astonishingly well researched account of what happened to school meals in Huntington, West Virginia—after Jamie Oliver left.
Surprise: They got better!
The subtitle explains why: “How an unassuming bureaucrat outsmarted Jamie Oliver and pulled off an honest-to-god miracle in one of America’s unhealthiest cities.”
