EAT WELL, EAT WISELY…AND ENJOY
Are we really what we eat? Food is certainly a mainstay of our cultures and communities. But its importance goes way beyond the glossy world of celebrity chefs, fashionable diets and TV cookery competitions. Modern methods of food production and distribution are having an ever greater impact on our natural world as well as on our personal health. We are becoming ever more aware of the ecological, ethical and social consequences of what we eat.
Hence our decision to devote much of the new, July/August issue of Resurgence & Ecologist to food and farming.
In this issue, food campaigner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall argues that we need to move away from unsustainable levels of meat production and consumption towards a more vegetable-based diet. Sue Pritchard contends that after Britain’s Brexit vote, we must produce new, coherent and consistent food and farming policies. We’ve articles on food and countryside conservation, feeding children, veganism, foraging – a provocative new book on eating – oh, and a recipe, too.
Virginia Woolf said: “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well.” By becoming more aware of our food, its origins and how it should enrich, not impoverish our world, our lives are also enriched.
Of course, we’ve a wealth of other reading, too. Our short story by Ben Okri, illustrated by Rosemary Clunie, is a work of magical beauty. And in our arts and reviews sections, spiritual and intellectual nourishment abounds. As always, we wish you bon appétit!
