Tim Fannon narrates this world food tour crisply and deliberately. His delivery style is reminiscent of a news reporter's and captures the author's enthusiasm for discovering the unusual--for example, there's a long early chapter on insects. But listeners should persevere: Enlightening stories on Roman fish sauce, neolithic bread, British farmhouse cheese, and an endangered Spanish pig--the Ossabaw Island hog found on a barrier island off the coast of Georgia--and more are shared. The Canadian author's journeys explore vast diversity. He made the visits he describes to find a way "to a sustainable and more nourishing past." Taras Grescoe, an award-winning nonfiction writer, argues that a return to the flavors and foodways of the past will benefit a planet crippled by monoculture agriculture and processed foods.
