Fifty Foods That Changed The Course Of History (Fifty Things That Changed The Course Of History)

A fascinating and beautifully presented guide to the edibles that - though now taken for granted - have had a great impact on the development of modern civilization. Beginning with our ancient hunter-gatherer ancestors, this gastronomic odyssey takes us right up to the genetically modified foods of the future. Discover how sugar fueled the transatlantic slave trade, why an oatmeal cookie was so important to the Allied First World War effort and how a simple soup came to be the inspiration for a modern work of art.
