“The Angry Chef is development chef turned blogger Anthony Warner’s splenetic persona. Writing in character, he cleverly turns his forensic dismantling of the pseudo-science behind recent food fads into something that’s both enlightening and a hoot.”
Featured in The Guardian’s Best Food Books of 2017.
We are tired of hearing about the unseen dangers of processed food and the legitimate role of a proper diet in forming the ultimate solution for all the health problems. Yet, we choose to ignore this, and Anthony Warner is unhappy about it. He feels that our relationship with food has become unhealthy, and is determined to stop this through his way of Expressing anger: The Angry Chef: Bad Science and the Truth About Healthy Eating
The angry chef is insanely terrific. It’s hilarious and at the same time, wonderfully insightful with a downright rude expression. This book helps you re-think when it’s hard to know the facts that should be believed about the food we eat.
Warner provides a careful establishment of the whereabouts of the superfoods or so-called fad diet ingredients and their relative propagation. He exposes the flaws in the ‘science’ behind the diets and provides an insight into the psychology that makes them so popular.
This book is essential reading when it comes to answering the “why” factor. Why do people spend lavishly on spirulina extract and activated almonds? Why do they choose pseudoscience over science? Warner has convincingly argued about the fact that the actual problem lies in the nature of science and its failure to give definitive answers.
The angry chef is an ambitious and well-researched piece of study about food science, which Warner has successfully managed to craft in the most entertaining manner.
