Review: Food in History

User Review  - Radhika - Goodreads

A fabulous, broad overview of 10,000 years of the place of food in human history. Tannahill ties together the social, economic, and aesthetic importance of food and draws examples from throughout the world. I can't recommend it enough. Read full review
