Mark Kurlansky

An authority on food

Often touted as an ‘authority on food’, Mark Kurlansky shares his knowledge thanks to extensive research and an insatiable curiosity. 

Having worked as a commercial fisherman, a dock worker, a paralegal, a cook and a pastry chef before making the transition to journalism in the mid-1970s, his experience is varied and rich. Exploring history, economic impact and cultural and social development associated with food and food production, Mark has published 28 books discussing how our world has changed thanks to the food around us including Cod, Salt and The Big Oyster.
