I read this book a few years ago softcover book and it sits as a treasured book in my collection I d like to have a hard cover of it one day This is a fantastic reference book It begins where humans began back in the caves and gives archeological evidence as well as common sense theories on how certain foods likely came to be such as yogurt and butter were probably discovered because of the practice of traveling with milk in the dried stomachs of animals And one thing leads to another The book is full of fascinating points on the usage origin and development of all kinds of food and not just covering the western world Nearly every country is mentioned though as the author freely admits written history needs to be taken with a grain of salt so to speakI have several food history books in my collection this one is my favorite that I flip through time and again

Food in History Free read Ö 2 Namon had to do with the discovery of America and how food has influenced population growth and urban expansio. We all must eat Some of us are curious about how we have come to eat what we do eat Tannehill s book retells the long journey through time and space This is a history book for the general reader that is full of interesting details that enrich the background for the reader Beginning with our prehistoric past the reader is taken through the classic civilizations then into the European Middle Ages and on to our own time The book has a strong Eurocentric slant the evolving cuisines of this peninsula being central and all other food complexes included primarily as they affect this evolution The background stories are entertaining and give perspective to the changing foods preparations and manners of eating in the past and as they relate to our own home tables The book was first published in 1973 my edition dates t 2002 and includes some recent information Still that was 17 years ago and a few things have changed The last chapters dealing with the craziness of the latest post 1950 food fads brings some of the scientific information close to being up to date that is healthy diets are not necessarily healthy than earlier unhealthy diets Which reminds me of my own impression of the scientific literature that exercisephysical work is important than diet in remaining healthyFull color pictures illuminating the text are found on almost a uarter of the pages including many that were probably difficult to find A down side to these illustrations is that they must be printed on slick paper that reflects light in the reader s face in a most distracting manner if held at a bad angleI began reading the book to get a better perspective on food as it affects human health through time I was not disappointed If you enjoy eating or preparing a diverse selection of cuisines you will enjoy reading the book almost as much as you like food itself It took me years to read the book Why I originally stopped reading mystifies me now that I have resumed reading and finished my taskThe text is well written and interesting allowing the reader to zip through the book much rapidly than might be anticipated The chapters are a bit long but broken up into subsections For the scholar there are useful footnotes bibliography and a minimal index It is a good book to just read but if you need information on specific topics Tannahill s book is a reasonable start
