The Book

‘A provocative vision.' Sunday Times

Anthony Warner was a professional chef working in many of the UK's leading restaurants and hotels before becoming the Head of Development at the UK's largest food manufacturer. Armed with a degree in biochemistry, he's dedicated to exposing the truth behind the packaging.

From plastic packaging to soil depletion to flatulent cows, we are bombarded with information about the perils of our food system. Drawing on years of experience within the food industry, Anthony Warner invites us to reconsider what we think we know. In Ending Hunger, he uncovers the parallels between eating locally and 1930s fascism, promotes the potential for good in genetic modification and dispels the assumption that population growth is at the heart of our planetary woes.

About the Author

Anthony Warner graduated in Biochemistry from Manchester University before embarking on a career in professional kitchens. He spent many years working in hotels, restaurants and event catering in the North West and London before taking a job as a development chef in the food manufacturing industry where he worked for over a decade developing recipes for some of the country's best-known brands and products.

Frustrated by pseudoscience and misinformation in the food industry, in 2016 he started a blog, which led to the bestselling book, The Angry Chef and a career in journalism. Two more books and countless arguments have followed.

He lives in Lincolnshire where he continues to blog at angry-chef.com and you can follow him @One_Angry_Chef.

‘This is an important book, and a good one. It's ambitious and well-researched and timely… Food science can be a dry topic, but Warner manages to make it an entertaining one.'
