Description: "Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are, " quipped the eighteenth-century gastronomer Brillat-Savarin. Indeed, cooking and eating transcend mere alimentary necessity -- how we define, prepare, and consume our daily bread can detail a full range of social expression. In Art, Culture, and Cuisine, Phyllis Pray Bober examines cooking through the dual lens of archaeology and art history. She shows that cuisine -- the higher, skilled, and creative manifestation of cooking -- is an art that should be elevated to the level of those more generally termed "fine."

Bober describes prehistoric eating in ancient Turkey; traditions of the great civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome; and rituals of the Middle Ages and the "Late Gothic International" period. To satisfy the adventurous reader, Bober has included old menus with contemporary adaptations.

With strong humor and deep love for her subject matter, Bober shows, for the first time, cuisine and dining's place at the heart of cultural, religious, and social activities that have shaped Western sensibilities.
