Summary: "When did the custom of meals served at regular hours begin? At what time did humankind rise to the table and commence eating with individual plates and utensills? Since when have we begun to speak of "cusine" and to judge our foods, their methods of preparation and manner of consumption, on social criteria of gastronomic merit? In this rich, illuminating book an array of authorities explore the history of food from prehistoric times to the present day." From the bookjacket.
