This is an interesting look at where our food comes from now and where it will come from in the future, and how different foods go from being fads to staples. I learned such things as how bagged salad became such a popular food item; how America came to love radicchio; how broccoli went from practically 0 as far as yearly consumption per capita in 1930 to being 8 pounds per capita in 2010; how more ocean fish are being farmed and how this is a remedy for our over-fishing the oceans. I especially liked the focus on being environmentally sound in food choices.
