About the Author

Carolyn Steel is a London-based architect, lecturer and writer. Since graduating from Cambridge University, she has combined architectural practice with teaching and research into the relationship between food and cities, running design studios at the LSE, London Metropolitan University and at the Cambridge University School of Architecture, where her lecture series on Food and the City was the first of its kind. A visiting lecturer at Wageningen University and director of Kilburn Nightingale Architects in London, Carolyn has been a Rome Scholar, presented on the BBC's One Foot in the Past, and gave a talk at TEDGlobal in 2008. Hungry City won the RSL Jerwood Award for Non-Fiction (for a work in progress) in 2006.

Reviews

"Exuberant, provocative... her desire that we understand better and think more about our food, how much we waste, how much energy it consumes and how we dispose of it... It is - in the real sense of the word - vital" -- David Aaronovitch * The Times *
"Hungry City is a sinister real-life sequel to Animal Farm with the plot turned upside down by time in ways even George Orwell could not have foreseen" * Observer *
"Lively, wide-ranging, endlessly inquisitive... Hungry City is a smorgasbord of a book: dip into it and you will emerge with something fascinating" * Independent *
"Absolutely crammed with eye-opening facts and figures, a hugely readable account of the part we individually play in a global problem. Highly Recommended" * Publishing News *
"She can precis her specialist sources briskly, and her own direct research (e.g. a mega kitchen for cooking ready meals) is lively" -- Vera Rule * Guardian *
