Product description

Review

'These are food memoirs, salacious and exotic, colorful, powdered, sweet, greasy and globe-trotting ... sharp and speedy little reads, spotted with off-kilter illustrations' --Chicago Tribune

'These little morsels of books are part of a delightful and new imprint known as the Edible series ... The history of each foodstuff is set out compactly and with erudition ... in each case, it's when the history moves closer to current day that revelation and delight meet.' --Diplomat magazine

Got this for a whiskey swilling friend of mine who already has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the stuff. Even he found a few snippets of new knowledge in this.
We were both amused by the on-going product title "Whiskey: A Global History (Edible)" as it's not really edible. Not without getting a dry mouth!
Fair price, fast delivery.
