A Must-have book on food, 16 Mar 2012
Joanna Blythman's book, like her others, makes you think. This one, just as the title sugests, makes you think about what to eat. It is very well written and eminently practical. To me, it's a must-have guide to help me through the confusion of food on offer these days.
She starts with 20 princles of eating - insightful, full of common sense. She then take us through ingredients one by one in a no-nonsense way, suggesting when to buy, their health benefits, green credentials and even how to cook : what's not to like?
When she writes that there's nothing new or modish about organics because, till 1950, all the food we ate was organically produced, that's something to store away, ammunition when confronted with people dissing the entire concept of organic food as new fangled and unnecessary.
In this extremely readable book, I'm sure I'm not alone in finding solutions to food quandaries.
