The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food by Dan Barber

The Third Plate (2014) is about food: the way we cook it, eat it, produce it and the ways in which all these things are intertwined. Barber examines the dangers of monocultures and presents a powerful argument for sustainable food. He not only explains how we can go about making food more sustainable, but how we can make it even more delicious, too.

  • Anyone interested in the future of our food
  • People who care about the environment and sustainable cuisine
