Summary: Fuller and Reddekopp take us on a fascinating exploration of the world of food. They travel around the globe to trace the enduring links of geography and food, showing how the preparation and enjoyment of dishes define the major cultural regions of the world. Though these regions have changed over time, the sharing of foods and food traditions are prime examples of our global connection.
