Organico Orecchiette Organic 500 g (Pack of 4) by Organico
5.0 out of 5 stars Just Perfect, 21 Dec 2011

Each chapter deals with a different food commodity and leads us page by page in a journey of discovery of what lies behind the modern and highly globalised food business. This is not a book written in a difficult or complex language and the personal stories that link into the big picture make it both accesible and enjoyable. I particularly like Felicity's ability to link up so many complex issues or angles together. At a time when so much misinformation is offered up by big agri-business and… Read more
