Real Food/Fake Food:  Why You Don't Know What You're Eating and What You Can Do About It

Real Food/Fake Food: Why You Don't Know What You're Eating and What You Can Do About It

by Larry Olmsted Author

Real food matters and being able to recognize it empowers consumers to make smarter choices. Part cautionary tale, part culinary crusade, Real Food/Fake Food reveals the shocking deception that extends from high-end foods like olive oil, wine, and Kobe beef, to everyday staples such as coffee, honey, juice, and cheese; a massive bait and switch in which counterfeiting is rampant and the consumer ultimately pays the price. It also does more than show us what foods to avoid: a bona fide gourmand, Olmsted travels to the sources of the real stuff to help us recognize what to look for, eat, and savor; real foods that are grown, raised, produced, and prepared with care by masters of their craft.
