In her latest book, award-winning food writer and author Bee Wilson (Swindled; Sandwich; The Hive) opens the doors of our kitchen cabinets and invites us down portals of food history that we never imagined. Mixing scientific stories of cooking technologies and savory tales of eating customs with tidbits of social history, she introduces us to culinary lore far more inviting than anything your microwave can offer. Whether she's escorting us into Neolithic Age caves for a lesson on ancient cooking techniques, chatting about the science of knives or describing how Chinese deforestation helped create the wok, "Doctor Bee" keeps us riveted. A fine recreational read for foodies.
