Fascinating look at what the world eats. I was amazed by the places where they are feeding huge families on almost no money. Comparing how much pre-packaged food we eat in the US to places like Bhutan where almost everything is home grown was really enlightening. It seems unfortunate to me that our Western way of eating is seen as normal, with our tons of soda and everything full of sugar, salt, and preservatives.

Twenty-plus families from countries around the world provide a lens to examine different eating and cooking practices around the world, from a refugee camp in Chad to Mongolia, Greenland, Australia, and more. Each family is photographed surrounded by a week's worth of food; there are facts about each region, a map highlighting each country's location, many captioned photographs, family recipes, and photographer's field notes. There are also photo galleries of different kitchens, street food, fast food, meals, and fish; there are statistics on annual meat consumption, fertility rate, literacy rate, population (% urban), and area in square miles. In short, this is an in-depth look at a topic of vital importance to everyone on the planet: food - how much it costs, what kind is available, how it's grown and cooked. Back matter includes further reading, sources, and index.… (mais)
