This attractive, handy pocket book is an enlightening and entertaining anthology of foodie facts, history, quotes, hints, and tips. Learn where in the world the annual monkey banquet is held, which gourmet chefs prepare a feast for pampered primates, why Eliza Acton's "Modern Cookery for Private Families" was such a runaway success in 1845, the science and theory behind the many different ways you can prevent an onion from making you cry, and the unbeatably healthy properties of fruit.
