Description
Since prehistory, our culinary tools have shaped what we eat, says Bee Wilson, but they have also transformed how we consume, and how we think about, our food. Wilson, BBC Radio's Food Writer of the Year (and named Food Journalist of the Year three times by Britain's Guild of Food Writers), here offers a delightful, witty, tool-based tour of the evolution of food around the world. She tells us how, for instance, the knife predates the use of fire, but the fork had to endure centuries of ridicule before gaining acceptance.

"In this culinary history, food journalist Bee Wilson shifts the focus from the foods people ate to the technology behind their preparation, tracing how humble kitchen implements such as forks, whisks, pots, and stoves shaped our diets, our societies, and our bodies. In Wilson's hands, even hot water becomes interesting."Discover Magazine
