Overview

We all have to eat, but what we eat and how we eat makes for the most interesting reading. People are often shocked by what other people eat and yet our idea of what is normal is entirely dependent on what is familiar. This cross-cultural history of food may make you think differently about your own meals.

Food is part of the Quick Read non-fiction series “Extreme Customs ” that will engage readers of all ages. What do customs mean in a given culture? This high-interest nonfiction series takes a look at the origins, practices and meaning of body modification (piercing, scarring, even plastic surgery), tattooing, burial rites, food traditions (everything from scorpions to fermented shark meat), and fashions in clothing and hair decoration.
