The winner of the Glenfiddich Best Food Book Award leads is on a dazzling culinary tour around the world and through history - from the fifth century BC to the present day. Presented by subject - including 'Food and Sex', 'Bread', 'Rants' and 'Dessert' - and illustrated with Kurlansky's own pen-and-ink drawings as well as classic photographs, this wonderful collection, like the very best meal, is varied, delicious and uniquely satisfying.

Review:

"An endlessly varied overview of our culinary history... an hors d'oeuvre to more satisfying topics of history and culture" Scotland on Sunday "A lively selection" Guardian "The book is fat with eccentric wit, tips and recipes... there are rich pickings especially among the literary tidbits: Hemingway on fish in the Seine, Chekhov on oysters and - best of all - Pablo Neruda's 'Ode to French Fries'" The Times "A mouthwatering compendium on food" Vogue
