Food expert Lenore Newman sets out to look at the history of the foods we have loved to death and what that means for the culinary paths we choose for the future. Whether it's chasing down the luscious butter of local Icelandic cattle or looking at the impacts of modern industrialized agriculture on the range of food varieties we can put in our shopping carts, Newman's bright, intelligent gaze finds insight and humor at every turn. Part culinary romp, part environmental wake-up call, Lost Feast
makes a critical contribution to our understanding of food security today. You will never look at what's on your plate in quite the same way again.
