We are delighted to have Matthew in conversation at Beaufort Street Books on Friday 12th July at 6.15pm for 6.30pm.
Tickets are $10 including nibbles and wine-tasting.
On Eating Meat is a scorching manifesto on the ethics of eating meat by the best placed person to write about it - farmer and chef Matthew Evans, aka The Gourmet Farmer. Going vegan might be all the rage, but the fact is the world has an ever-growing, insatiable appetite for meat - especially cheap meat.
Former food critic and chef, now farmer and restaurateur Matthew Evans grapples with the thorny issues around the ways we produce and consume animals. From feedlots and abattoirs, to organic farms and animal welfare agencies, he has an intimate, expert understanding of the farming practices that take place in our name. Evans calls for less radicalisation, greater understanding, and for ethical omnivores to stand up for the welfare of animals and farmers alike.
On Eating Meat is an urgent read for all vegans, vegetarians and carnivores.
‘This is the most important food book I’ve read in years. Not just for meat lovers or vegans, it should be read by anyone who eats food. When I finished this book I felt informed, connected and empowered to make better decisions about how I shop, cook and eat.’ Alex Elliott Howery, Cornersmith
