This was a super interesting little book. It's one of those books you pick up, read a little, put down, pick up again. It's chocked full of little bits of information covering a wide variety of subjects. Has great colorful handdrawn illustrations and fun font types that give it a bit of a notebook type feel.
-Some of the things covered in this book are the...
-Different ways people/cultures set their tables.
-Different forks and spoons and how to use them.
-How cocoa is harvested and processed.
-Different types of sushi and how it's made.
-Different types of cakes and pastries from around the World.
-The history of fortune cookies and candies.
-A look at stoves and refrigerators through the years.
-And about 1000 more things from veggies to meat to fish and beyond.
There is also a few different recipes sprinkled throughout that added to my overall enjoyment of this one. Just a really fun book that would make an excellent gift for that foodie on your Christmas list!
