The quest to feed the world without destroying it
Nutritionists tell you to eat more fish. Environmentalists tell you to eat less fish. Apparently they are both right. It's the same thing with almonds, or quinoa, or a hundred other foods. But is it really incumbent on us as individuals to resolve this looming global catastrophe? From plastic packaging to soil depletion to flatulent cows, we are bombarded with information about the perils of our food system. Drawing on years of experience within the food industry, Anthony Warner invites us to reconsider what we think We know. In ending hunger, he uncovers the parallels between eating locally and 1930s Fascism, promotes the potential for good in genetic modification and dispels the assumption that population growth is at the heart of our planetary woes.

He spent many years working in hotels, restaurants and event catering in the North West and London before taking a job as a development chef in the food manufacturing industry where he worked for over a decade developing recipes for some of the country’s best-known brands and products.

Two more books and countless arguments have followed. He lives in Lincolnshire.
