Summary
"Taking on the commandments and condescension of the likes of Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, and Mark Bittman, [Lusk] casts long overdue skepticism on fascist food snobbery, debunking the myths propogated by the food elite"--Dust jacket flap
Summary
Criticizes the logic of liberal elites who the author claims are hypocrites when it comes to food policies, tackling such issues as organic foods, the potential held by genetically modified foods, and the dynamics of locavorism
