Been reading lots of book on food politics/history/economics and so on in the past few years, but am a bit tired of getting American perspectives on these issues since I don’t even live there. Anyone got recommendations of books focused on Europe primarily, but also other non-American regions? Do share!
Bread of Dreams: Food and Fantasy in Early Modern Europe, Piero Camporesi
@andrej do you happen to have a digital copy of this? Couldn’t find it online.
@Alcstrt Sorry, no. Recommendation came via a friend who has also no e-version.
@Alcstrt I'm not a massive book person, but very into food & land related stuff.
Can offer you the recent Cereal series from the Farmerama podcast.
Real interesting look at economic, social & environmental impacts around grains/bread and the industrialisation of grain agriculture and bread production.

@dazinism oh this is great, thank you!
A pleasure. A couple of favorites, that highlight less often considered perspectives.
Small farms are just so much more productive per land area. Just generally production:financial cost is considered
Via Campesina represents 200 million small & peasant farmers.
Also find this article very interesting
