I had a writerly go – extending beyond 100,000 words – to demonstrate that Meals Matter, but here I try to persuade you that the book’s not just a pretty cover.

Yes, meals matter, as you might accept. But do you really appreciate how much meals shape our politics, economics, and social analyses?

Two centuries of laissez-faire, then free enterprise ideology, and, lately, neoliberalism belittled meals. Our lives were meant to centre on money instead.

But read the book, and catch up with the conversation.
