5.0 out of 5 starsVery satisfying
Reviewed in Canada on September 20, 2015
This book had been recommended to me mostly on the basis of me being a self-professed foodie. What I did not expect was such a well written book, one that was fun to read. Deep thoughts on food, its history and future, and the viability of a sustainable way forward driven by taste, are supported and framed in a light-humoured and very personal tone. Barber has a voice, and a lot to say. His book is a must read for anyone concerned about food, and his vision is clear and refreshingly non-dogmatic. Enjoy.
5.0 out of 5 starsYou'll never eat the same way again!

The Third Plate exceeded my expectations...I found it in a most unexpected bookstore in Whitehorse in the Yukon and read it all the way back to the interior of BC and then onto the west coast of Vancouver Island...on the way, I considered all Dan Barber had to say about food, people, the land, the past and the future of mankind and our behaviors...wow...along the way, I also purchased several copies to be sent to members of my family and friends...it is inspirational in terms of agriculture, on both large and small scales...and it is thought provoking about eating and health practises...I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone.
