In this engross­ing mem­oir, Mar­i­on Nes­tle reflects on how she achieved late-in-life suc­cess as a lead­ing advo­cate for health­i­er and more sus­tain­able diets. Slow Cooked recounts how she built an unpar­al­leled career at a time when few women worked in the sci­ences, and how she came to rec­og­nize and reveal the enor­mous influ­ence of the food indus­try on our dietary choices.
