About the Author
Robyn Metcalfe is founder and director of Food + City, a UT Austin-based lab that brings attention to how we feed cities now and how innovations in ag (lab-grown food?) and transportation (drones? 3D printing?) will transform the food supply chain as we know it. Of interest: she's an ultramarathoner, wrote for Sunset Magazine, and has a Cordon Bleu certificate for culinary skills.
Reviews
"Food Routes is an intriguing look at where our food does (and doesn't) come from, where it will and should, and why tech is not a panacea." - Mark Bittman, author of How to Cook Everything

"A fresh, eye-opening analysis of the logistics of getting food from farm gates to consumers' plates. Metcalfe's on-the-ground research in Asia, Europe, and the Americas brings a welcome dose of reality to the often-sloganeering world of food politics." - Rachel Laudan, Senior Research Fellow in the Institute for Historical Studies, University of Texas at Austin; author of Cuisine and Empire: Cooking in World History
