Where has all the good food gone, and what is the fate of food in the world? In the last fifty years ‘food’ has become associated with ‘bad’, with diets and the focus on weight and food nutritional value overcoming the prior focus on food affection. In Last Chance To Eat: The Fate Of Taste In A Fast Food World, Gina Mallet covers the history and problems of five popular foods: eggs, cheese, beef, vegetables and fish. Individual chapters narrow the focus to a cultural examination of the evolution of dishes around each of these ingredients–and changing perceptions about their health and value.
