Louise Gray’s fascinating, revealing new book is subtitled And Other Stories About Where Your Food Comes From. If you have ever wondered why we can buy British strawberries in April, how far your green beans travelled in the journey to your kitchen or who picked your Fairtrade bananas, Louise can tell you. This riveting account of the stories behind the everyday makes sense of the complex food system we are all part of as it tracks the journeys of our five-a-day from farm to fruit bowl and discusses the impact that growing fruit and vegetables has on the planet. Is the avocado, symbol of clean eating, fuelling the crisis?
