Description
 
From the forbidden fruit of the Old Testament to the numerous laws broken at Francois Mitterand’s final meal, this witty and captivating book offers a mouth-watering history of food taboos from around the world -- a smorgasbord of culinary tidbits to spice up any after-dinner conversation. In an age when half the world’s population -- from cow-loving Hindus to kosher Jews and Western vegetarians -- still lives with harsh dietary restrictions, this book reveals just how significant, and pervasive, our relationship with food has always been. “Food factoids, humor, mad opinion, history, and hearsay tumble across the pages of this book.” “Turns the driest food facts into succulent morsels.”
