taking time...

In between getting ready for Belgium...and getting ready for the women's retreat at my new church...and every day living, I've been stopping here and there to read bits of an interesting book I borrowed from the library, A Thousand Years Over a Hot Stove. 

If you like history...and food...and cooking...I think you will really enjoy this book. It's amazing to see how far we've come in regard to food. In regard to how it's obtained...how it's prepared...where it all came from. I guess I should say, it's amazing to see how far we've come FROM food.

This book is definitely going on my list of  "books to watch for at the used book store." It has great information and interesting historical recipes...some that make you cringe a little and some that just might be worth a try sometime!

I'm in the midst of a string of food culture books lately. I just finished reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and am now on to In Defense of Food. Looks like I have one more to add to the list! :D
