The Angry Chef signs deal with Oneworld

Oneworld has acquired the first book by professional British chef and blogger Anthony Warner, otherwise known as 'The Angry Chef'.

Alex Christofi, senior commissioning editor, bought UK & Commonwealth rights to The Angry Chef: Angry about lies, pretentions and stupidity in the world of food, from Alexandra Cliff at Peters Fraser and Dunlop.

Christofi said: "Food is a national obsession, and books about food dominate the bestseller lists. So why aren’t we talking more about the utterly daft claims being made about various diets and superfoods? What I love about Anthony Warner is that he takes unpalatable and sloppy pseudoscience and uses it to cook up a dry, frankly delicious polemical in defence of good food. If you're thinking of investing in a new recipe book, you need to read this first."

Warner said: "I get angry about these things because I care about them. I care about food, care about what people eat, care about the huge crisis caused by obesity, care about the future food supply of the world. I want to play a small part in holding the people that work in food to account."
