The Cook's Companion
An enlightening and entertaining anthology of foodie facts, history, quotes, hints and tips. Take that pan off the cooker and settle down to learn about where in the world the annual monkey banquet is held at which gourmet chefs prepare a feast for pampered primates, why Eliza Acton's Modern Cookery for Private Families was such a runaway success in 1845, the science and theory behind the many different ways you can prevent an onion from making you cry, and the unbeatable health-giving properties of fruit.
