Where has all the good food gone? That’s the question posed in the new book, “Last Chance to Eat: The Fate of Taste in a Fast Food World.” The book is written by Toronto-based cultural critic Gina Mallet. Mallet is not the first writer to protest the industrialization of the food industry. But she also contends that mythical food scares and misguided environmentalism have contributed to the loss of taste in contemporary cuisine.

“Last Chance to Eat” is published by W.W. Norton Books. Mallet will be appearing at Shelburne Farms on Monday evening at 6, and she’ll be hosting a dinner at the Dorset Inn on Tuesday evening at 6.
