And Other Stories About Food and Culture


Focusing on the selection, preparation, and mythology of food, Montanari shows that cooking not only is a decisive part of our cultural heritage but also communicates essential information about our material and intellectual well-being. From the invention of basic bread making to chocolate's reputation for decadence, he positions food culture as a lens through which we can plot changes in historical values and social and economic trends.
