The Food Program - 13 Foods that Shaped the World
It's easy to reach for the salt, put on the rice or stick a slice of bread in the toaster without thinking about the wider societal implications of our choices, or how those foods have shaped our cultures and history.
In the first official book from BBC Radio 4's The Food Programme, journalist and writer Alex Renton explores 13 food staples in depth. From their historical origins to their impact on different cultures, to the political and environmental implications of their modern production - Renton puts everyday food under the microscope.
This is an interesting read and makes a fantastic gift for foodies, history buffs, and those with an interest in politics.
