I just listened to these audio books. I had seen” Eating on the Wild Side” by Jo Robinson, and had meant to read it, a while back, but the other book, “The Dorito Effect” by Mark Schatzker was just one that jumped out at me while I was browsing at the library. The books seemed very different at first, but then it was apparent that they are telling very much the same story.
The main difference is that Robinson talks about the important nutrition available in certain varieties of vegetables, helping us to pick and maintain via storage the most good. Mark points out how goodness was bred out of food, both vegetable and meat, to deliver the best in terms of convenience and tastiness.
I strongly recommend both these books
