Vital stories for hungry minds.
In the first official book from BBC Radio 4’s hit series The Food Programme, award-winning writer Alex Renton tells the stories of 13 key staples such as spice, oil, cocoa, bread and tomatoes, exploring their history, evolution and how our ever-growing hunger for them continues to alter our world. Look at food in a new light – as a weapon, an art form, a tool of revolution, but also a bringer of pure happiness.
