The Virtues of the Table - Julian Baggini

The Virtues of the Table by Julian Baggini is a thought provoking exploration of our values and vices. How we eat, farm and shop for food is not only a matter of taste.

Thinking seriously about food requires us to consider our relationship to nature, to our fellow animals, to each other and to ourselves.
