CONSIDER THE FORK A History of How We Cook and Eat

by | Read by Alison Larkin

History • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Bee Wilson considers the fork, and all manner of food preparation devices, in her treatise on cooking methods worldwide. Evoking the warmth and sumptuousness of a kitchen bustling with culinary purpose, Alison Larkin's narration fits like an oven mitt. Her refined, crystal-clear British accent ranges prettily from describing the science and history of how early humans first learned to cook to discussing today's new cookery inventions. Wilson's experimentation with high-tech gadgets is recounted in Larkin's empathetic and amused tones. This work shows how we cook with the tools "that tamed fire and ice." Utensils and vessels basic and complex, huge and miniscule, have transformed how we eat and how we think about food today. A.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
