Fortnum & Mason Food Book of the Year 2016 We are not born knowing what to eat. We all have to learn it as children sitting expectantly at a table. For our diets to change, we need to relearn the food experiences that first shaped us. Everyone starts drinking milk. After that itâe(tm)s all up for grabs. We are not born knowing what to eat; we each have to figure it out for ourselves. From childhood onwards, we learn how big a portion is and how sweet is too sweet. We learn to love broccoli âe" or not. But how does this happen? What are the origins of taste? And once we acquire our food habits, can we ever change them for the better? In First Bite, award-winning food writer Bee Wilson draws on the latest research from food psychologists, neuroscientists and nutritionists to reveal how our food habits are shaped by a whole host of factors: family and culture, memory and gender, hunger and love. She looks at the effects siblings can have on eating choices and the social pressures to eat according to sex. Bee introduces us to people who can only eat food of a certain colour; toddlers who will eat nothing but hot dogs; doctors who have found radical new ways to help children eat vegetables. First Bite also looks at how people eat in different parts of the world: we see how grandparents in China overfeed their grandchildren, and how Japan came to adopt such a healthy diet (it wasnâe(tm)t always so). The way we learn to eat holds the key to why food has gone so disastrously wrong for so many people. But Bee Wilson also shows that both adults and children have immense potential for learning new, healthy eating habits. An exploration of the extraordinary and surprising origins of our taste and eating habits, First Bite explains how we can change our palates to lead healthier, happier lives.

We do not come into the world with an innate sense of taste and nutrition; as omnivores, we have to learn how and what to eat, how sweet is too sweet, and what food will give us the most energy for the coming day. But how does this education happen? What are the origins of taste? In First Bite, the beloved food writer Bee Wilson draws on the latest research from food psychologists, neuroscientists, and nutritionists to reveal that our food habits are shaped by a whole host of factors: family and culture, memory and gender, hunger and love. An exploration of the extraordinary and surprising origins of our tastes and eating habits—from people who can only eat foods of a certain color to an amnesiac who can eat meal after meal without getting full—First Bite also shows us how we can change our palates to lead healthier, happier lives.

Fantuzzi was born into the harsh streets of 1950s Spanish Harlem, New York. Surrounded by guns, drugs, prostitution and a cynical outlook on life, he made a leap at the age of 14 into a totally new existence. LSD, Yoga, the burgeoning Hippie culture of the 60s, Hindu mythology and spiritualism all played significant parts in transforming his existence. By the age of 16 he had left New York City for ever; heading out on the road without a penny to his name, he hitch-hiked around the whole of the USA twice before selling his guitar for a plane ticket to England and Glastonbury Faire. He travelled overland to India with a bohemian music-theater group called The Rainbow Gypsies, later formed his own group and eventually became a solo traveller. Twice bitten by rattlesnakes, he received the "snake medicine" as a divine message that sent him on a permanent global pilgrimage to share his love and connection to the Divine, to illuminate the same ecstatic sensuality in others, to disseminate fun, happiness, joyfulness. Fantuzzi's story is a unique melding of music, magical meetings, famous friends and mystical insights, not to mention some very steamy encounters with many beautiful goddesses along the way. This story will enthrall, surprise, delight and inspire, it may even change your life.
This vampire is determined to keep his new wolf at arm's length, but fate has other ideas.
