A Greedy Man in a Hungry World by Jay Rayner

We don't often recommend books on Confidential. But we think this one is a game-changer – for people who eat out and people who cook, for chefs and restauranteurs.

It made us reconsider some of our closest-held beliefs about what's good and what's not so good in the food industry.

Local food, seasonal eating, artisan producers...we big them all up on this website. But what role will they play in a hungry world where there will soon be nine billion mouths to feed?

We already know organic food isn't good for our wallets, but we always thought it was good for the planet. Were we wrong?

Jay Rayner looks at the facts and finds they don't always fit with the marketing line fed to foodies like us.

Part memoir, part reportage, he presents a new argument for large scale food production. He also manages to make us laugh while he's at it.

Read it – we'd like to know your opinion. It could change the way you think about food for good.
