Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Russell Bentley unpacks the mystery behind the mundane daily ritual of eating. He brings a playful approach to this exploration of how foods came to taste the way they do. Examining a variety of topics--from cheese to beer, extinct mammals, and taste buds--Bentley dexterously moves listeners between the present and the prehistoric past. He is a cheerful narrator for this interesting look at how diets of the past have shaped modern meals. Bentley's performance creates the sense that one has dropped into an engaging seminar that is accessible to anyone interested in the history of flavors. Listeners may find themselves becoming increasingly hungry over the course of this audiobook. M.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
