Much Depends On Dinner

About the Book


Winner of the Glenfiddich Prize for Food Book of the Year

Course by course, Margaret Visser examines an ordinary meal—corn, salt, butter, chicken, rice, lettuce, olive oil, lemon juice and ice cream—to show the unexpected history, mythology and taboos behind what we eat.
