Choice Cuts, A Choice Book by Mark Kurlansky

Perhaps best knows for his books Salt: A World History and Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World, Mark Kurlansky's collection of intelligent essays, Choice Cuts: A Savory Selection of Food Writing from Around the World and Throughout History, is proving to be an informative and entertaining read. He covers the gamut, from ancient food writing to contemporary. Who knew the father of French cuisine worked in London and actually predicted Nouvelle Cuisine in the late 1800s? And what is the difference between a gourmet and a gourmand anyway?

If you enjoy reading about the history of food and regional foods like I do, then this book is for you.
