If you care about what you eat and want to keep planet Earth alive, then you should definitely buy Larry Olmsted's brand-new book. Food is one of the most important (and delicious) things in life and in Real Food/Fake Food, a really smart, funny and refreshing piece of work, the author makes us "respect" it and helps to stay away from the fakes.
We all heard horrifying stories about folks making cheese from wood, lobster rolls with everything but lobsters in them, poisonous milk, et cetera, et cetera. The supermarkets, diners, and kitchens in the United States are crowded with fake food and it's kinda hard to figure out what is it exactly that we're eating every day. So, that's why Mr. Olmsted decided to write this book - to convince the regular US citizens that they need to be more conscious about what they're putting into their mouths.
If you ever wanted a sneak peak into the food industry, this book is your best "ticket". Coffee, honey, olive oil - it's all fake, ladies and gentlemen, and we need to do something about it! We, the consumers, are paying the ultimate price - we're damaging our bodies, our digestive systems without even thinking about it. Now, in this book, you'll find more than a list of foods to avoid.
Larry is a true gourmand, and he travels to the farthest corners of the world to get that real stuff, that healthy stuff. Italy, Portugal, the US - he's been pretty much everywhere, and he's ready to share his experience with the readers! Learn about real foods that are grown and prepared with care by professionals who are always putting customer satisfaction first. Be warned, though: the author describes the delicious food in such excruciating details that you'll immediately empty all of the food supplies in your house!
