5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating and Well Researched Book, 4 Jan. 2014
Unlike the author, I am not an expert on the history of food and its production, neither am I a gourmet nor master chef. Never the less, I found this book on the history of world food well researched, interesting and most readable.

In its conclusion, Laudan draws to the reader's attention to the fact that in the richer parts of the world, woman no longer have to spend all their days preparing food such as grinding maize, but now have time for their children, paid work or leisure. They now have the choice whether to prepare meals from scratch, to buy ready prepared ingredients, a ready made meal, get a 'take away' or even go to an inexpensive restaurant for the family meal. They have CHOICE and it is this choice, not available in the past, that most women would loath to give up.

I enjoyed this book immensely and thoroughly recommend it.
