    2. For those who know me, they ll tell you that I have an interest in the history of food, and lets be honest, food in general I love reading histories about food where we ve been, what we re doing now, and where we might end up This is an easy read and the title describes what it s about It s not all about Henry VIII eating at large banquets, it s about food in general too, and that s what makes it interesting.
