Description
For the gourmet in all of us, this one-of-a-kind thematic atlas explores the historical origins of favorite, everyday foods and exotic delicacies and, with world maps, shows where these foods originated and how they ended up on your dinner table. From Brussels sprouts to goat milk to sugar plums, almost every conceivable food is researched and presented in a high-end, beautiful format, complemented by detailed and accurate maps. Learn how butter, common to northern Europe but unliked in the olive-oil Mediterranean nations, became a contributing cause of the Reformation. Or, ponder the fate of corn -- relished by Americans as a summer favorite on the cob, but until recently considered as pig food by most Europeans. Finally, within these pages, we have the answers to age-old questions: Are English muffins really from England? Are French fries really from France? Here, in this beautiful 4-color volume, is the perfect reference for all gourmets, all cooks, and everyone with an interest in food -- an important addition for every kitchen, home, and library.
