Best-selling author and noted illustrator of Nature Anatomy, Julia Rothman takes her pen into the kitchen with this charming, illustrated guide to all things edible around the globe. She focuses her curious eye on the origins, types, tools, traditions, and techniques behind the most popular foods and preparations, from breads to fish to spices and desserts.




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!
