A Greedy Man in a Hungry World – Jay Rayner

Recommended reading list

Son of British agony aunt Claire Rayner, journalist and broadcaster, Jay Rayner debunks many food myths such as the doctrine of local food and suggests that farmer’s markets are merely a lifestyle choice for the affluent middle classes. We will soon have 9 billion mouths to feed, and we aren’t going to do that by selling free-range chickens from a stall in Borough Market. This book is written in a very entertaining way and covers Rayner’s life growing up as a child in the 70s, mentioning foods that will bring back memories for many readers. It also touches on the food sustainability issues too much meat eating causes, and suggests an alternative animal protein that is eco-friendly that we could all consume without guilt.
