A good book with many interesting perspectives. I certainly learned some very interesting things and now have some ancient cookbooks to hunt down. I was hoping for more insight into the how and why of taste and not just the what.. but I suppose that may be a difficult thing to research. My one complaint about this book (especially in the chapters that focus on French Cuisine) is regarding the relatively large number of French words and phrases that were not translated. I found it distracting and a bit difficult to get through those parts of the book.
