Reviews
A vital call for us to rediscover the way that food binds us to each other and to the natural world, and in doing so find new ways of living--Christopher Kissane, Guardian

Steel's ideas have become a matter of urgency--Clare Saxby, Times Literary Supplement

Essential reading! A visionary look at how quality food should replace money as the new world currency--Tim Spector

Steel offsets the obviously weighty subject matter with a lightness of touch and twinkling eye for luminous details... an unambiguously essential read--George Reynolds, Daily Telegraph

The beauty of food is that it is so many things at once: necessity and treat, nature and artifice, the subject of science, philosophy, etiquette and art. The book is accordingly multiple in its themes, an all-you-can-eat buffet of thoughts and facts about food...a brave and ambitious book--Observer
