No culinary student or chef- to -be should be without this book. How important is salt beyond the dinner table? Find out where Saltzburg got its name. What three items were deemed by Moses as the sacrificial foods of choice and why. Its one thing to cook and plate food, its another to understand their history. Make youreself a better food-historian and look beyond current cuissene.

Are you a lover of food? This book is great--it tells how all these yummy foods and spices came to be. Did you know that in the old days sailors sailed thousands of miles just to get some spices!? Interesting, eh? More fun tidbits. Reads like a comic book.
