This could be called Kurlansky’s “breakthrough” book, published in 1997, which put a dramatic new spin on the now pervasive genre of “Food Writing”. His style is light and highly entertaining, but there is a certain sadness underpinning the telling of the thousand year history of a supremely influential industry that has, in all practicality, come to an end.

This might be the perfect book to read when you want to feed your brain something healthy, but don’t feel quite up to the, as yet unopened, “definitive”, 1000 page, “must read” tome that a well-meaning someone gave you a while back.
