5.0 out of 5 stars Have your cake and eat it., 3 Nov 2003
By 
This review is from: Schott's Food and Drink Miscellany (Hardcover)
Buy, borrow, or steal a copy. This little gem of a book is packed full of information relating to all things edible.From Absinthe to Zoo Eating, by way of Dining Times for Monks, it is all here.
Neatly packaged with a useful index, this book is designed for the itinerant reader and will appeal to anyone with an enquiring mind or love of the abstract.
A great deal of genuinely useful information is presented together with an entertaining mix of irreverent and sometimes bizarre material, which is guaranteed to provoke and comfort.
Much delightful detail is provided on the demon drink and the book is probably best enjoyed with a strengthening tincture.
I cannot recommend the book too highly {it would prove an excellent Christmas gift} nor find fault except that now hooked I will be compelled to buy the others in the series.
P.S. Should it all prove too much the Heimlich manoeuvre can be found on page 92.
