, Literary Review

«How lucky we are that Dan Saladino has been able to tell these stories... <b>This is the most important book about food that I have read for a long time... Beautifully written and without hyperbole.</b>»

«<b>A feast of research and information [and] a digestible collection of beautiful stories</b>... <b>A very important book.</b>»

«<b>Essential reading</b> for those with a profound interest in the culture, history and anthropology of what, how and why we eat. It's <b>completely absorbing, enlightening and a necessary addition to every bookshelf.</b>»

«This is <b>an enthralling tour </b>of some the world's most endangered foods... Saladino marshals a galvanising array of evidence for what we stand to lose»

, The Bookseller

«<b>Packed with breathtaking facts</b>... Saladino moves seamlessly from the political...to the personal... <b>Let's hope that <i>Eating to Extinction </i>can change the world.</b>»

, Mail on Sunday

«<i>Eating to Extinction </i>operates on a parallel time scales, as a polemic on the urgent need for action on agricultural diversity, and as a deeply researched, if accessible, history of food and drink production... Its satisfactions come from Saladino's ear for a human story and the breadth of the landscapes, and ecosystems, it covers... <b>Saladino's study is immersive, evocative on a planetary scale, and appropriately so if we are to consider how best to protect the planet's resources</b>.»

, Times Literary Supplement

«<b>Packed full of knowledge about a host of ingredients that you probably didn't even know existed, <i>Eating to Extinction</i> captures the urgency (and cost) of heading towards a future that is less nutritionally diverse.</b>»

, New Scientist

«Saladino offers many wonderful vignettes of indigenous food cultures.»

Economist

«We all need to pay more attention to what we are (and are no longer) eating...<b> Dan Saladino inspires us to believe that turning the tide is still possible.</b>»

«<b>A rallying cry to us all </b>to protect the world's diversity before it's too late. <b>But this is also a book filled with optimism</b>; it captures the energy of a global movement of people dedicating their lives to saving the plants, the animals, the flavours and the food knowledge we must preserve.»

«<b>For anyone interested in Darwin, world power, and life itself, read on.</b>»

«Dan Saladino's brilliant book answers the questions we forgot to ask, and highlights the incredible diversity we stand to lose. <b>A genuine masterpiece and a call to arms. Everyone who loves food and cooking should read this.</b>»

«<b>This inspiring and urgent book is one of the few food books that has ever given me goosebumps...</b> A love letter to the huge diversity of foods enjoyed by human beings, but it is also a call to arms to preserve that diversity and strangeness against the onslaught of a globalised industrial food system... <b>It is a story full of both loss and hope. </b>»

«Dan Saladino writes about global food culture as <b>urgently and compellingly</b> as he broadcasts on The Food Programme. <b>He makes a brilliant case that the diversity of our food culture is inextricably linked to the biodiversity of our environment, and therefore the future of our food IS the future of our planet.</b>»

«<b>A fascinating journey </b>across the fast disappearing diversity of our foods, which we ignore at our peril -<b> a brilliant read.</b>»
