What's for Dinner?


By Jill Griffiths

The plants, animals and farmers that feed us and what our choices mean for them and the planet.

What are we really eating? How do we eat in a way that nourishes us and does least harm to the environment? What exactly do farmers do? Should the world go vegan? Do food miles matter?

Never before has so much food been produced by so few people to feed so many. Never before have Australian consumers been so disconnected from their food production, yet so interested in how it is done.

What’s for Dinner? delves into the way our food is grown and our responsibilities as eaters. Weaving together science, history and lived experience, What’s for Dinner? takes readers on a journey to meet the plants, animals and people who put the food on our plates. It’s a book for anyone who eats.

Read Serena Kirby’s review for ARR.News:
… a blend of science, history and lived experience … this book certainly shines a light on what we put on our plates. Highly recommended reading.
