Topic: The importance of foods we love, but what it means to lose themBook: “Bread, Wine, Chocolate: The Slow Loss of Foods We Love” Award-winning journalist Simran Sethi explores the history and cultural importance of our most beloved tastes while providing a wake-up call to the homogenization that is threatening the diversity of our food supply.Discover how the foods we enjoy are endangered by genetic erosion—a slow and steady loss of diversity in what we grow and eat. Shockingly, 95% of the world’s calories now come from only thirty species.
