Product description


The average shopper often buys food on trust with little idea of its true quality. This work, by an award-winning writer, examines all the foods we routinely buy, asking how they match up to the standards that modern food consumers are increasingly demanding.

Joanna Blythman is Britain's leading investigative food journalist and has won a number of awards in recognition of her work, inc. 1997 Glenfiddich Special award and the Jeremy Round Award 1997 (Guild of Foodwriters) in the national press, culminating in the book THE FOOD WE EAT. She writes for the Guardian, Scotland on Sunday and several magazines, including BBC Good Food.
