With an acute eye and an irrepressible wit, Margaret Visser takes a fascinating look at the way we eat our meals. From the ancient Greeks to modern yuppies, from cannibalism and the taking of the Eucharist to formal dinners and picnics, she thoroughly defines the eating ritual.
“Read this book. You’ll never look at a table knife the same way again.”—The New York Times.
I purchased this book to replace the one I have been reading once a year, since it’s been published! I’m a trivia buff but that is not the only reason. The excellent writing and depth of subject is spellbinding. A few more years of this and I’ll have it memorized. The original volume was snatched up by a good friend who knows how much I love it. The product and the timely service are great!
