Sitwell elevates this collection from curious cookbook to a serious study -- Publisher's Weekly
Sitwell deftly inserts interesting tidbits ranging from the changes wrought by such appliances as refrigerators and gas stoves to the impact of online technology...Good fun -- Kirkus Reviews
William Sitwell has done a phenomenal job on researching the subject matter for this book. A noted personality on the U.K. cuisine scene, this books is first to be published and this edition has been modified to the U.S. market to include more "nods" to the culinary wonders in this country.
Sitwell does not provide 100 recipes per se, but rather goes all the way back to the beginning to when the first supposed "recipe" was discovered on the walls of an Egyptian tomb. He works his way up through the ages from the invention of pasta in 1154 in Sicily to party planning in the 1420's and more!
This is a solid book that should be equally appealing to the foodies and history buffs alike.
