Publisher Description

Explore the rich stories, symbolism, and traditions that come wrapped up in the food on our plates - food that not only feeds our bodies but also makes up our culture. In The Story of Food our millennia-old relationship with nearly 200 foods is sumptuously illustrated, with tales from all over the world - from nuts and seeds to noodles and meat.

The Story of Food tells the extraordinary stories behind the foods we eat; did you know that China is the largest producer of lettuce in the world? Or that garlic was eaten by Olympic athletes in Ancient Greece to enhance performance. In ancient Egypt it was fed to slaves to boost their health and stamina?

Review

Expect this book to live on your coffee table for regular flicking-through sessions to tantalise and tease the taste buds. Cotswold Life Fascinating and beautifully illustrated. Irish Examiner History's never been so appetising! The People's Friend It's this beautiful book... I thought that's going to look lovely in the kitchen and it's [full of] really interesting facts about all types of ingredients. Alex Jones, The One Show Brilliant images, inspiring fantastic words Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2
