Narrator Donna Postel ensures that Robyn Metcalfe's plea for food efficiency comes through with passion. She rattles off the qualities of various types of packaging as if she's giving a high-powered sales pitch and quietly appeals to our senses as she talks about the food experience. Metcalf brings philosophical issues, such as the question of what is local, into a roundup of food developments, including a few listeners may have heard of such as the Impossible Burger and lab culture meat. Listeners may detect a bit of incredulity as the author mentions the facial recognition ability of poultry. Metcalfe ends with a dual discussion of the future of food--one evolutionary, one revolutionary. They differ only in degree, making it clear that change is coming to listeners' pantries.
