Kale is popular for healthy living, appearing on restaurant menus, in grocery stores and in beauty products. It's in salads, on pizzas, and in soups. "Eat me. I'm good for you," it shouts, but for some, the vitamins and fiber cannot outweigh the bitterness and texture of this cabbage family member.
Kale is a Four-Letter Word presents kale in a new light. It has stories about those who introduce kale to their spouses and the reaction of those so targeted; horror stories about kale; a speculative history of kale; a murder mystery where kale plays an unusual role; and a fantasy about kale's rivalry with cauliflower.
The book also contains recipes. A word of caution, though. One was written by someone with a novel approach to cooking kale.
Accompanied by illustrations, some original to this work, this book is a fun read for everyone, whether they like kale or not.
