Julian Baggini has that rare but wonderful gift of being able to be at once profound and highly entertaining. This remarkable book combines the pleasures of the table with those of philosophy, and once again this most engaging of philosophers has achieved a perfect balance. Marvellous
Alexander McCall Smith
Excellent. By examining the virtues of all aspects of food, a very broad approach, the author cuts through all the myths, confusion and lazy thinking with a precision and humour that enables the reader to think and eat better. If you care about what you eat then you need to buy this book
Charlie Hicks, presenter of Radio 4’s Veg Talk
[Baggini is] a serious thinker and a fluent writer... This book might cause you to look again at some of the choices you make about what to eat, and how you go about eating it
