"Petrini’s central message is that everyone who eats should only buy food that is good, clean, and fair. Without being didactic, the author vigorously stresses the importance of all three components in his discussion of food policy, as well as case studies from all over the globe."
"[Carlo Petrini] exudes so much joy, hope, and optimism in his new book that it's hard not to be swept away by his impassioned arguments for social, political, and environmental justice. . . Food & Freedom celebrates boundless pleasures. A hedonist's guide to feasts and food fellowship, it also takes real delight in political argument as befitting an Italian familiar with European ideologies. Political activists both young and old might find Food & Freedom useful reading."
-NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS
"For anyone who has a passion for food, [Food & Freedom is] an important book. Read it slowly, in appreciative nibbles, rather than gobbling it down like a fast-food meal during a time-crunched lunch break. Be a gastronome, and appreciate it as you read it and later, in its recollection."
