Food - not just for eating....

I am now more involved with food and the idea of politics and food before I became a chef was not on my radar. I now see and understand the issues around food, sourcing, supply, pricing, safety, marketing etc and have to find ways to deal with them in my daily life.

The insights that Marion has are useful and real! Its an interesting and sometimes difficult read but it does highlight some of the issues we all need to think about and even make decisions on ourselves when it comes to food.

Well done!

Everyone who eats food should read this. Even if it is a few years old, everything still applies to this day.
