Riassunto: This wide-ranging history covers the history of food from the earliest, vegetarian members of the human race to the present day. The book explores the relationship between people and diet, and between food and social mores. The book covers a vast variety of foodstuffs - honey, cereals, meat, coffee, chocolate, tea, bread, oil, cake, fungi, fish - and shows how their consumption has evolved down the ages. It concludes with an investigation of scientific issues, including methods of food preservation, dietics and he importance of vitamins.

Dal retro di copertina: The story of cuisine and the social history of eating is a fascinating one, and Maguelonne Toussaint-Samat covers all its aspects in this definitive history. She looks at the transition from a vegetable - to an increasingly meat-based diet, as well as at the relationship between people and what they eat, between particular foods and social behavior and between dietary habits and methods of cooking.
