This compulsive book investigates the American food production from the perspective of a biologist rather than that of a futuristic. In this article, Pollan brilliantly shows how finances have turned development on its head. He charts the expeditions of four dinnertimes from a fast-food eating-place, a biological supermarket and an organic farm. Pollan not only shows how shoppers have become displaced from their nourishment, but also lays basic the perversities enacted by industrial and biological farming. Yet the volume’s masterstroke is to be created in its sinister description of corn, a crop that is handled and manipulated, and which the west is consuming in ever- increasing measures.

This reveals the preferences that consumers opt for during dinner times and the considerations that determine the actual meal times. It is imperative that the book also offers reviews of essential ingredients of different foods in the universe.
