Sherlock Holmes at the dinner table:
a fascinating series of vignettes of things that go awry at the dinner table. Doctor Edlow sets the scene with puzzling symptoms which, through clever epidemiological sleuthing, eventually uncover what shouldn't have been ingested and why. Scombroidosis: when the fish has not been properly cared before cooking, the innocent consumer may turn scarlet, suffering from toxic histidine levels. Usually alarming, but rarely fatal, and almost always puzzling, this is a good example of need for kitchen hygiene. Many other interesting chapters cover a wide variety of puzzling disease presentations.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
