Food, or the lack, of it can consume (pardon the pun) much of our time. For some it becomes an obsession, the central focus of daily life. The huge number of diets, recipe books, celebrity chefs and television programmes certainly reflects a growing interest in widely differing aspects of the subject.
Whatever your own views, the quotations in this book - heartfelt, amusing, controversial - will undoubtedly entertain you. Chew on them slowly and thoughtfully. They contain much food for thought and mental nourishment.
