THE CORE OF AN ONION Peeling the Rarest Common Food- Featuring More Than 100 Historical Recipes

by | Read by Mark Kurlansky

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Mark Kurlansky brings an authoritative narration to his latest food history endeavor. In the first part, Kurlansky explores the history and science of the onion, delivering his insights with the matter-of-fact demeanor of a seasoned professor. In the second part, Kurlansky reveals his passion for historical recipes, which is evident in his brighter narration. The recipes are thoughtfully categorized based on the bulb's various preparations in the way of a well-curated cookbook. There are moments when Kurlansky's raspy voice detracts from the listening experience, particularly when grappling with scientific terms and foreign names. Throughout, however, Kurlansky shines a light on historically significant recipes, each accompanied by intriguing anecdotes. S.K.G. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2024]
