  • We all need to pay more attention to what we are (and are no longer) eating... Dan Saladino inspires us to believe that turning the tide is still possible.

    Yotam Ottolenghi
  • A rallying cry to us all to protect the world's diversity before it's too late. But this is also a book filled with optimism; it captures the energy of a global movement of people dedicating their lives to saving the plants, the animals, the flavours and the food knowledge we must preserve.

    Alice Waters
  • For anyone interested in Darwin, world power, and life itself, read on.

    Cerys Matthews
  • Dan Saladino's brilliant book answers the questions we forgot to ask, and highlights the incredible diversity we stand to lose. A genuine masterpiece and a call to arms. Everyone who loves food and cooking should read this.

    Gill Meller
  • This inspiring and urgent book is one of the few food books that has ever given me goosebumps... A love letter to the huge diversity of foods enjoyed by human beings, but it is also a call to arms to preserve that diversity and strangeness against the onslaught of a globalised industrial food system... It is a story full of both loss and hope.

  • Dan Saladino writes about global food culture as urgently and compellingly as he broadcasts on The Food Programme. He makes a brilliant case that the diversity of our food culture is inextricably linked to the biodiversity of our environment, and therefore the future of our food IS the future of our planet.

    Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
  • A fascinating journey across the fast disappearing diversity of our foods, which we ignore at our peril - a brilliant read.

    Tim Spector
  • An inspiring account of endangered foods and food cultures across the planet. Everyone who cares about what they eat will want to know its stories.

    Harold McGee
  • This is a poignant and urgent read, it gets to the heart of storytelling because its threads the one thing that connects us all, our relationships to food... Dip into this book immediately, just don't do it on an empty stomach.

    Alys Fowler
  • A real attention-grabber, an exceptionally wide-ranging, informative clarion call... As much an inspiring guide to the pioneering individuals, indigenous groups, scientists, and food producers who are championing the world's rich food heritage, as a warning about what threatens it.

    Joanna Blythman, BBC Good Food Magazine
