Curiosities of Food: or, the Dainties & Delicacies of Different Nations Obtained from the Animal Kingdom
Peter Lund Simmonds (au); Alan Davidson (in). A facsimile of the book originally published in London in 1859. This rare treasury of culinary history was recently brought to light in the award-winning “Oxford Companion to Food,” whose author, Alan Davidson, used it as a primary reference in researching some of the more obscure foodstuffs consumed across the globe. Davidson writes that “Curiosities” “is in all probability the first attempt to write a general worldwide survey of animal products.” Long out of print, this lost classic of wit, erudition, & grand storytelling is now made available in this facsimile edition. “Just about everything that walks, swims, crawls, slithers, or flies has been eaten at one time or another.” Tasting notes by Davidson are included.
