4: Food and the Planet

When it comes to food and the planet there is a lot of advice out there. But which food choices actually make a difference? And which ones turn out to be myths? In this episode, I give you the facts and numbers you need to make your food choices matter. 

And I talk to Alice Zaslavsky, cook, writer, radio host, and author of the best-selling book “In Praise of Veg”. Because in the end, food is all about flavour.
