Fortnum & Mason Food Book of the Year 2016

We are not born knowing what to eat; we each have to figure it out for ourselves. From childhood onwards, we learn how big a portion is and how sweet is too sweet. The way we learn to eat holds the key to why food has gone so disastrously wrong for so many people. But how does this happen? And can we ever change our food habits for the better?

An exploration of the extraordinary and surprising origins of our taste and eating habits, in First Bite award-winning food writer Bee Wilson explains how we can change our palates to lead healthier, happier lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`When you open FIRST BITE and see Science, don't panic. It is a weirdly addictive, intelligent and enjoyable explanation of why we eat as we do: more unputdownable than any non fiction has a right to be. Everyone should read it. And it might change your life. ` Charlotte Mendelson

`Bee Wilson is the ultimate food scholar. First Bite is a brilliant study of how we form our food preferences and how we may be able to change them. Her narrative kept me hungry for more until the very end.' Yotam Ottolenghi

`This is a fascinating, at times provocative, investigation into how and why we eat what we do, how food can be both medicine and poison, and a call-to-arms manifesto to make eating guiltlessly pleasurable for all.' Nigella Lawson

`If there were any justice in the world, this book should be at the top of this month's diet-book bestsellers ... I agree with every word she writes' Daisy Goodwin, Sunday Times

`If any book can effect long-term weight loss, it should be this one, because it feeds the mind rather than denying the body' The Times

`First Bite is a feast of a book ... Wilson's focus on how we learn to eat rather than on what we eat is a refreshing new template for improving our relationship with food.' Financial Times

`First Bite is a brilliant read; a month after finishing it, I still think of it every time I set the table.' Observer Food Monthly

“Entertaining and thought-provoking”

For someone who's never had any problems eating anything which comes near their mouth, it's amazing to read about the vast amount of psychology that actually goes into the process of eating for a lot of... More
