Review: Food in History

User Review  - Dana - Goodreads

This book covers a lot of ground. It's the history of food in almost every major cultural context. It wasn't dry, and the information was presented in digestable chunks. It's a great overview of how and why we eat what we do, through all periods of history. Read full review

User Review  - Tami - Goodreads

I love food issues, but this was a bit boring. Except for the part on gas and farts- that was funny. Read full review
