Explores how the implements we use in the kitchen have shaped the way we cook and live. This title tells the story of how we have tamed fire and ice, wielded whisks, spoons, graters, mashers, pestles and mortars, all in the name of feeding ourselves.
This is the story of how we have tamed fire and ice, wielded whisks, spoons, graters, mashers, pestles and mortars, all in the name of feeding ourselves. Bee Wilson takes us on an enchanting culinary journey through the incredible creations, inventions and obsessions that have shaped how and what we cook.
From huge Tudor open fires to sous-vide machines, the birth of the fork to Roman gadgets, 'Consider the Fork' is the previously unsung history of our kitchens.

"A cracking good read, as enjoyable as it is enlightening" Raymond Blanc, Chef-Patron 'Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons'

"Wonderful ... Witty, scholarly, utterly absorbing and fired by infectious curiosity" Observer
