Product description

Review

"Endlessly fascinating. A terrific book." (Bill Bryson)

"Fascinating....Flavour, as Bob Holmes demonstrates elegantly, exists nowhere but in the mind of the eater." (Wall Street Journal)

About the Author

Bob Holmes has been a correspondent for New Scientist magazine for nearly two decades, and has written more than 800 articles for the magazine, mostly about genetics, environment, evolution, psychology, anthropology and agriculture. He has also contributed to many other publications, including US News & World Report, Science, Health, National Wildlife, Nature Conservancy magazine and the San Francisco Chronicle and made several radio and television appearances in Canada as well as in the US and the UK. As well as earning a PhD in evolutionary biology from the University of Arizona, he has taught for several years in the science writing programme at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and now teaches science journalism at Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre on Vancouver Island, Canada. A member of Slow Food Canada, he has worked with the taste education programme of his local chapter and is a passionate home cook. He lives with his wife and teenage son in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Flavour is his first book.
