Food Fight! A Mouthwatering History of Who Ate What and Why Through the Ages
This review practically wrote itself. This is a perfect go along to any history or geographical study that you may have going on this year. The best part? It has recipes for those adventurous eaters that are everywhere but at my house and unless you go through all of human history in one year, you can get multiple school years out of it. I could also see people with a Coop making a history of food type class with this.
From caveman snacks, right on up to foods you can eat in Outer Space this book covers all the major civilizations. You get history, pictures (that Nat Geo is known for) and recipes. Each chapter includes common foods eaten at the time, sample menus, table manners and usually a day in the life and a fun quiz.
There are fifteen chapters and bonus food timeline and recipe index. We had a great time reading tidbits to each other for a few nights while I was cooking dinner. Kids and adults ages 4 and up will learn something from this for sure.
Please note that I received a free advance ARC of this book from Nat Geo without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
