Product description

Review

‘An entertaining exposé of the ‘bad science’ behind food fads.’

(Sainsbury’s Magazine)

‘A terrific and…much-needed book: both heartfelt and thoughtful, often funny and, above all, utterly convincing.’

(James Walton, Daily Telegraph)

‘One by one Warner demolishes popular food myths…this [is] a book that will allow you to enjoy food with less guilt; it might even save lives.’

(Guardian)

‘If you’ve ever wondered why kale, avocado toast and sweet potatoes are ubiquitous, or if you tear your hair out over the “clean-eating” fad, then the Angry Chef is your man.’

(The Sunday Times)

‘Funny and forensic.’

(Financial Times Summer Books 2017)

The Angry Chef deserves to be widely read. It covers all the bases with aplomb. The world needs a popular science book to help people tell the difference between science and opinion.’

(Spectator)

‘Warner’s dismantling of the faddists’ fads, their gullibility and idiocy is precise, witty and more humane than I can find it in myself to be.’

(Michael Bywater, Literary Review)

'As a restaurant critic, qualified chef and greedy person, I found the book fascinating...this is a thoughtful, forensically researched and referenced work on healthy eating and, more importantly, it's entertaining.'

(Lisa Markwell Evening Standard)

‘This is an important book, and a good one. It’s ambitious and well-researched and timely…Food science can be a dry topic, but Warner manages to make it an entertaining one.’

(Spectator)

'Pragmatic, funny and most important of all, true.'

(Tom Parker Bowles Mail on Sunday)

From the Author

'The phrase "you are what you eat" is a commonly held wisdom within the bullshit-nutrition community. Of course we are not what we eat. Vegans are quite clearly made of meat.'
