The second issue of the Integrale tells of the fury of diets towards carbohydrates, and towards our natural inclination to love them. Explore the complex history of the host as a supernatural bread and that of toast as the embodiment of food capitalism. It makes a state of the art on artificial intelligences applied to doughs and on grain improvement techniques that have alternated over the last century. It tells of diseases and hallucinations caused by ergot for centuries and of the bloody stories that, in myths and contemporary literature, are set in wheat fields.
