Review quote

'Bee Wilson weaves staggering information and fascinating insights into a gripping and inspiring story that is both fairytale and horror story. A brilliant must-read about what touches us all' Claudia Roden


'Bee Wilson's fascinating book is a guide to the future of food and how we eat and will be eating. Meticulously researched and written brilliantly' Ken Hom

'Bee Wilson once again proves herself one of the world's most compelling voices in journalism ... This book should be required reading for everyone' Darra Goldstein


'This is urgent reading. Bee Wilson writes with a deep understanding of the problems posed by the way we eat today, but she never loses sight of her own love for the joy and promise and power of eating well. I always walk away from her writing feeling more hopeful than despondent, resolved to do better for myself, my family, and the planet' Chris Ying
