Review: Food in History

User Review  - Anna Knutson - Goodreads

So good! Probably the most readable lighthearted non-fiction I've ever read. Comprehensive from the Palaeolithic era to modern times but full of little weird details and facts. A great read for beefing up your scrabble power! Read full review
