Witty, Unique and Informative,
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 is an unusual book, one which would make a great gift for chefs and cooking lovers alike. It would also be an interesting read for quiz lovers - lots of interesting facts that may just give extra points on a quiz or the answer to a tie breaker.
The book concentrates on all things kitchen - not just food, but the implements and crockery too. The author looks at the various tools and implements which are used everyday. It was a fascinating and entertaining read. The author had researched her topic well and included little known facts alongside an informative read.
It looks at cooking and kitchens through the ages - but did not concentrate on the cooking, as many history books do, but on how the cooks cooked and what they used.
A great book - one which can be dipped in and out of.
