Everything you need to know about your favourite foods. A thoughtful guide for foodies and everyday shoppers, The Food Lover's Handbook includes over 40 products that we are likely to buy in our weekly shop, from the every day such as tea, eggs and cheese to the luxury items like cavier, chocolate and wine.
In this wonderfully illustrated book, Mark Price explains why the cost of our food can vary so much from one supplier to another, dispelling myths and providing fact-based, un-biased accounts of where our food comes from, the morals behind diverse production methods, and why prices and taste vary, clearly and concisely explaining why the cheapest to the most expensive foods cost what they do. This is a book from an industry expert, taking you through the whole process from planting the seed and harvesting, through the production and packaging processes to the placement of products on our supermarket shelves. The Food Lover's Handbook gives you the shopper the tools youy need to be able to make informed decisions about what to buy and how much to spend.
