Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Bee Wilson has written an immensely enjoyable and very witty book. I had pondered ordering the book for some considerable time but a review in the Guardian persuaded me to take a punt. A decision I wish I'd taken much earlier: humour is as nourishing as food. The newspaper was spot on when it said the author had identified a gap in the market for an erudite yet witty general survey of food technology. A food book that isn't primarily about food! Full marks for writing such an engaging tome. For once spoons and forks are to the fore! Highly recommended.
