The story of cuisine and the social history of eating is a fascinating one, and Maguelonne Toussaint-Samat covers all its aspects in this definitive history. She looks at the transition from a vegetable - to an increasingly meat-based diet, as well as at the relationship between people and what they eat, between particular foods and social behavior and between dietary habits and methods of cooking.
