Description
 
Sue Shephard (au). The history of food preserving is, quite simply, the story of civilization itself. This book weaves together the stories of the inventors & key developments of food preservation in a detailed narrative that spans centuries & continents. It is a tale filled with unusual characters, old legends & new revelations. Describes how Attila the Hun & his men ‘gallop cured’ their meat, how cooks became chemists & chemists became cooks, how men made or lost fortunes & some even lost their lives. From the primitive techniques of drying & salting to the latest methods, this book gives us an insight into the histories, cultures & ingenuity of people in their struggle to invent new ways to ‘cheat the seasons’. 100+ illustrations.
