Peter Deadman’s classic book was first published in 1973 and sold mainly through Infinity Foods' pioneering shop in Brighton's North Laines. It had been out of print for three decades when Infinity unearthed a dusty, dog-eared copy in the office.
Nature’s Foods is very much the product of its time and the youthfulness of its authors. It is idealistic and naive in places, with some inaccuracies that must be understood by the reader. However we feel that it embodies a vision that is still valid today and one which is needed more than ever. It proposes that how we eat affects our health and has ecological and economic consequences for the planet we live on and the other humans and animals we share it with. Whilst the book’s suggestion that a whisk can be made out of birch twigs never really struck a chord with the public (correct us if we are wrong) the book's constant mantra of buy local, buy seasonal, buy organic is now the accepted orthodoxy for sustainable living.
