Journalist and broadcaster Dan Saladino joins Patrick for this episode. Dan is best known for his work as a food writer, and for his long-term contribution to the BBC’s Food Programme. 

Dan’s recently published book Eating to Extinction: The World’s Rarest Foods and Why We Need to Save Them, involved 10 years of travel and research, exploring the plight of unique food systems which are threatened and rapidly disappearing. Inspired by Slow Food’s Ark of Taste, Dan explains the impact of industrialisation on our farming systems and what this means for our food culture.


“... and that's what we should be doing as individuals, is actually becoming more in tune with where our food comes from and who is out there”
