Description
Today the average meal has traveled thousands of miles before reaching the dinner table. How on earth did this happen? In fact, says Sarah Murray, long-distance food is nothing new and, since the earliest times, the things we eat and drink have crossed countries and continents. A travel writer and longtime Financial Times contributor who reports on the relationship of business to the environment, Murray follows items on a grocery shopping list to show how the journeys of food have brought about seismic shifts in economics, politics, and even art, and poses a contentious question: is buying local always the most sustainable, ethical choice?

"[Murray's] investigations are detailed, sophisticated, and intellectually satisfying."Washington Post
