Not all doom and gloom…

Well, the reviews have started rolling in, and what they seem to be picking up on so far under titles such as ‘Our Recipe for Disaster’ (The Observer) and ‘Unappetising Truths about the Food Industry’ (The Telegraph) is that the way we eat now is damaging our bodies and destroying the planet. Too true. But Hungry City is not just a book about how we are all going to hell in a handcart – it is also a practical attempt to find a way out of the mess. I do understand that when you confront the realities of modern food delivery for the first time, it can be pretty shocking. But we need to get beyond the shock, and start taking action. That is the real message of Hungry City – that food is not just a question of what we eat, but something that shapes every aspect of our world. By recognising its importance, we can change a lot of things for the better. For me, that is a very positive thought.
