not a classic,
This review is from: Consider the Fork: A History of Invention in the Kitchen (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book promised more than it delivered in the end. It as a good idea, and obviously the author is well qualified to write on this subject, but sadly for me it had a feeling of "rushed school project" about it.
I kept hearing Dorothy Hartley in my head; some ground covered in this book overlapped with that of Food in England, a far far better book. Go and buy that one instead. Disappointing.
