With a rating of 3/5, this audiobook will take you on a captivating 12-hour and 5-minute journey into the dark underbelly of our food industry.
You may have heard the shocking headlines – sawdust masquerading as Parmesan cheese, lobster rolls without any lobster, and extra-virgin olive oil that's anything but. But what you may not realize is that these fake foods are not just isolated incidents. They've infiltrated our supermarkets, restaurants, and even our kitchen cabinets.
Prepare to be astounded as Olmsted, an award-winning food journalist and travel writer, lifts the curtain on this deceitful world. Real Food/Fake Food pulls back the curtain on the unregulated food industry, exposing the widespread fraud that's being inflicted upon unsuspecting Americans. And the deception doesn't stop at high-end delicacies like olive oil, wine, and Kobe beef. Everyday staples like coffee, honey, juice, and cheese are also victims of this malicious game.
But fear not, dear listener, because Olmsted does more than just reveal the truth. As a genuine connoisseur of fine cuisine, he takes us on a culinary adventure to unlock the secrets of real food. He travels to the very sources of authenticity – from Italy for genuine Parmigiano-Reggiano, to Florida for fresh-caught grouper, and to Portugal for authentic port. He guides us in recognizing and savoring the real stuff, prepared with love and expertise by true masters of their craft.
Get ready to have your taste buds tantalized and your knowledge expanded. Real Food/Fake Food is not just an audiobook; it's a wake-up call for every consumer who cares about what they put into their body. So, sit back, listen intently, and be prepared to never look at your grocery items the same way again.
