Good, but needs update
on 9 March 2011
I bought this book some years ago and found it had a huge effect on the way I thought about the food I was buying and where it was coming from. After reading it you find yourself checking the ingredients in your bread, looking at what country veg and salads were grown in and generally thinking more about food production, food miles, buying more locally produced foods or growing/making your own!
However I suspect some of the information in the book is no longer current as the rules and regulations governing food production will have moved on since then and things change, so if you are looking for a book about how food is produced today I would look for something written more recently.
