Anthony Warner is a food and science writer, and the author of The Angry Chef blog.
Anthony studied Biochemistry at Manchester University before deciding that the heat of the professional kitchen was the career for him. After ten years in restaurants, hotels and events-catering he became a food development chef, working on some of the UK’s best-known brands and products.
In 2016 he started The Angry Chef blog, dedicated to debunking the pseudoscience surrounding the way we think about food and health, and in the space of a few short months has amassed an army of followers. He is currently working on the proposal for a book on the same topic.

‘If it wasn’t for the fact that there is no God, I’d thank him for bringing us the Angry Chef. In this brilliant book he systematically demolishes every single piece of food-related faddery, hack science, nutritional fakery and clean-eating cobblers in a manner that should make every so-called “wellness” and “nutrition” guru hang their heads in shame.’ Jay Rayner, journalist and broadcaster.
Never before have we had so much information available to us about food and health. There’s GAPS, paleo, detox, gluten-free, alkaline, the sugar conspiracy, clean eating… Unfortunately, a lot of it is not only wrong but actually harmful. So why do so many of us believe this bad science?
Assembling a crack team of psychiatrists, behavioural economists, food scientists and dietitians, the Angry Chef unravels the mystery of why sensible, intelligent people are so easily taken in by the latest food fads, making brief detours for an expletive-laden rant. At the end of it all you’ll have the tools to spot pseudoscience for yourself and the Angry Chef will be off for a nice cup of tea – and it will have two sugars in it, thank you very much.
