Troubling but surprisingly tasty.,
This review is from: Bad Food Britain: How A Nation Ruined Its Appetite (Paperback)
You don't have to be a fanatic about food to enjoy this book. It is well written and extremely well researched. Joanna Blythman is able to draw examples from so many sources to back up her thesis.I found myself laughing out loud at some points-not what you would expect from a book on the sad state of the nation's attitude to food.
It is a real insight into how our attitudes to food have developed and is a powerful argument against the complacency which might suggest that things have improved here in Britain.
This is a book for those interested in food politics, for social historians and for those who wonder why we are the fattest nation in Europe.
