In her fascinating first book, journalist Sarah Murray tours the globe in search of the stories behind food miles. Along the way, she collects a series of astonishing facts and vivid accounts, offering a historical perspective to a subject that has grabbed the headlines, and illustrating food's crucial role in shaping global politics, taste and culture. Murray shows how the well-travelled dinner is an inevitable consequence of man's quest for sustenance and argues that globetrotting food was a reality long before the term `food miles' was coined.
