Wow. This is the biggest book of cooking I have ever seen, and it is just on the history of food. Not a recipe book. It was recommended by the author of CakeLove as one of his research pieces used to launch his baking career. I was curious, but will not be reading it. I picture myself reading this in my 60's when I have more time and spend hours in the kitchen exploring. (I also dream of owning a lake house at that age and trying pot for the first time in an adirondack chair at the end of my pier.)
