The prize for “One of the more thought-provoking food-related books I’ve read (so far)“, definitely goes to Jay Rayner’s A Greedy Man In A Hungry World. While Mr Rayner has his fair share of supporters and detractors, it is worth noting that he narrates the topics in a casual and entertaining approach – almost never forcing anybody to agree or disagree with his views. It serves as a great read for those who are for or against the whole idea of locavorism, eating food labelled “organic” (and other similar food fads); and an even better read for neutralists or the generally food-curious.
Has anyone out there read the book? Please feel free to share your thoughts and views.
