A riveting narrative history of food as seen through 100 recipes, from ancient Egyptian bread to modernist cuisine. Culinary expert and BBC television personality Sitwell explores the fascinating history of cuisine. We all love to eat, and most people have a favorite ingredient or dish. But how many of us know where our much-loved recipes come from, who invented them, and how they were originally cooked? In this book, culinary expert and BBC television personality William Sitwell explores the fascinating history of cuisine from the first cookbook to the first cupcake, from the invention of the sandwich to the rise of food television. It offers interesting fare for anyone who has wondered about the origins of the methods and recipes we now take for granted.
