An erudite and entertaining history of food, Sitwell's 100 (or thereabouts) recipes range from a bread recipe found in an Egyptian tomb to the latest creations of Jamie Oliver and Heston Blumenthal. En route we encounter medieval ravioli and the first printed cookbook, the invention of the sandwich, the arrival of the fridge and ice-cream soda, and the post-war revolution in British cooking following the arrival of Mediterranean and Indian cuisine.
