“Technology is not a form of robotics but something very human: the creation of tools and techniques that answer certain uses in our lives.”
Bee Wilson, Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat

“The way you teach a child to eat well is through example, enthusiasm, and patient exposure to good food. And when that fails, you lie.”
Bee Wilson, First Bite: How We Learn to Eat

“Traditional histories of technology do not pay much attention to food. They tend to focus on hefty industrial and military developments: wheels and ships, gunpowder and telegraphs, airships and radio. When food is mentioned, it is usually in the context of agriculture—systems of tillage and irrigation—rather than the domestic work of the kitchen. But there is just as much invention in a nutcracker as in a bullet.”
Bee Wilson, Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat
