From a tiny crimson pear in the west of England to great chunks of fermented sheep meat in the Faroe Islands to an exploding corn in Mexico that might just hold the key to the future of food - these are just some of the thousands of foods around the world today that are at risk of being lost for ever.
In this captivating and wide-ranging book, journalist and broadbaster Dan Saladino spans the globe to uncover the stories of these foods. He meets the pioneering farmers, scientists, cooks, food producers and indigenous communities who are preserving food traditions and fighting for change. All human history is woven through these stories, from the first great migrations to the slave trade to the refugee crisis today. But Eating to Extinction is about so much more than preserving the past. Eating to Extinction reveals a world at a crisis point: the future of our planet depends on reclaiming genetic biodiversity before it is too late.

Wheat is one of the most common foods but whole wheat grains - sometimes known as wheatberries - are surprisingly rarely used. They're a versatile, tasty and nutritious ingredient that brings the full flavour of wheat, whether used whole or freshly milled.
The grains can be soaked, cooked and eaten whole, but our current spring wheat is best suited for milling at home (we recommend using a Mockmill) an makes a flavoursome and nutritious flour.
