With wit, and insight, and no small amount of provocation, THE CARNIVORE'S MANIFESTO is both a revolutionary call to arms and a rollicking good read that will inspire, engage and challenge anyone interested in the way we eat today.

Synopsis

The Carnivore's Manifesto Eating Well, Eating Responsibly, and Eating Meat by Patrick Martins, Mike Edison

We have evoled as meat eaters, proclaims Patrick Martins, and it's futile to deny it. But, given the destructive forces of the fast-food industry and factory farming, we need to make smart, informed choices about the food we eat and where it comes from. In 50 short chapters, Martins cuts through organised zealotry and the misleading jargon on food labelling to outline realistic steps everyone can take to be part of the sustainable-food movement.

Reviews

Martins, founder of Slow Foods USA and Heritage Foods USA . . . has created a blueprint for healthy eating, sustainable farming, biodiversity, as well as for protecting culinary traditions and cultural differences. [He] is passionate, preachy, and, above all, practical-he doesn't want you to make your own ketchup or give up pizza, just to buy the best meat and produce that is in season and to chose quality food over commodity food. - Publisher's Weekly
