Description of the book

Our plates have never seemed so varied and our grocery stores so abundant. But could it be that behind this profusion lies a global loss of food biodiversity?

Greatly nostalgic, urban nutritionist Bernard Lavallée wanted to understand how foods prized by generations of humans could suddenly disappear, but above all, what could have caused their extinction and why this should alarm us.

Without ever dropping his refreshing humor, he retraces five major moments in our food history and their effects on the diversity of our diet. Captivating portraits of once-abundant but now-extinct foods accompany his findings, as examples of what could happen to the plants and animals we get enough of today.
