Professor Lacey is on the side of the consumer, you and I, as he reveals the sinister sides of food production and the dangers lurking in the kitchen.The reader is served up with a feast of practical tips on the handling of food. But food is fun too! Our taste buds work overtime as we are shown how to enjoy food that is both delicious, healthy and safe.
