Be prepared to change your food-buying habits after listening to this carefully researched look at the American food industry. Narrator Jonathan Yen's conversational, expressive style makes it easy for listeners to absorb the sometimes surprising information about the food they think they're purchasing. For example, restaurants can legally serve lobster rolls that actually contain no lobster whatsoever. Yen deftly handles the required accents as author Olmsted travels around the world--from French vineyards to Italian cheese caves, Japanese beef farms, and California olive groves--explaining the importance of terroir and the differences between authentic foods and the readily available, insufficiently labeled knockoffs found in American markets and restaurants. Besides detailing foods to avoid, this audiobook recommends products that can be bought with confidence. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2016]
