Consider the Fork
In Consider the Fork, award-winning food writer Bee Wilson provides a wonderful and witty tour of the evolution of cooking around the world, revealing the hidden history of everyday objects we often take for granted. Blending history, science, and anthropology, Wilson reveals how our culinary tools and tricks came to be, and how their influence has shaped modern food culture. It's a story of how we have tamed fire and ice and wielded whisks, spoons, and graters, all for the sake of putting food in our mouths.
Bee Wilson is a food writer, historian, and author of many other books. She lives in Cambridge, England.
