Anne Willan. founder of
La Varenne cooking school in France, has a new book out - The
Cookbook Library which reviews the history of recipes and
cookbooks over the last several centuries. She has an interesting article in
Zester Daily about how food became spectacle and entertainment.
Fascinating to read what was considered normal a few hundred
years ago. We wonder what earth-dwellers in 2200 will find
shocking in our diets?
