“It’s now becoming clear that the way that most people currently eat is not sustainable – either for the planet or for human health”.
So writes Bee Wilson, award-winning food writer whose probing articles about our eating habits appear in a wide range of publications including The Guardian and The New York Times.
Her latest book, “The Way We Eat Now: Strategies for Eating in a World of Change” is an enthralling look at what we eat and why we eat it, which takes in everything from bland bananas and the dangers of the disappearing lunch hour to the way we routinely favour speed and convenience over quality, taste, and the sheer joy of eating. Both global in scope and engagingly personal, it will repeatedly make you think, fork halfway to your mouth, about what you’re putting in there and why.
We are delighted to welcome Bee to Stroud Book Festival to tell us more, in conversation with fellow food writer and Stroud Book Festival favourite, Matthew Fort.
