Publishers Text

Michael Pollan meets Anthony Bourdain in What I Eat, a portrait of 80 people from 30 countries—each photographed with all the food they eat in one day. Photos and profiles of a soldier, a sumo wrestler, a competitive eater, a world-famous chef (Ferran Adrià of El Bulli), a welfare mom and recovering addict, a Sudanese refugee, a model, a monk and more are accompanied by details of how old each person is, how tall and heavy, how active, and just how many calories he or she puts away in a day. The winning blend of stunning photography and sensitive reportage expands our understanding of the complex relationships among individuals, society, and food.
