Synopsis

'A visionary look at how quality food should replace money as the new world currency' Tim Spector

'Hugely ambitious and beautifully written...destined to become a modern classic' Bee Wilson


How we search for, make and consume food has defined human history. It transforms our bodies and homes, our politics and our trade, our landscapes and our climate. But by forgetting our culinary heritage and relying on cheap, intensively produced food, we have drifted into a way of life that threatens our planet and ourselves.

What if there were a more sustainable way to eat and live? Drawing on many disciplines, as well as stories of the farmers, designers and economists who are remaking our relationship with food, this inspiring and deeply thoughtful book gives us a provocative and exhilarating vision for change, and points the way to a better future.

'Utterly brilliant' Thomasina Miers

*Shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize 2020*
