Meh. This book was a real slog to get through -- I only finished because I feel honor-bound to finish what I start. I'm not sure why I found it such a slog, though. I guess I just couldn't get interested in the topic, though by any estimation it's the kind of thing that OUGHT to interest me. And what's with all the recipes? But if you look at a list of Kurlansky's books it's clear he's very interested in food.

Regardless, I feel that my issues with the book were my own issues, and not the fault of the author's. I did enjoy his book on salt.

In other words, I guess...just don't pay any attention to this review?
