Food is a necessity and, at the same time, a pleasure that we encounter every day. But have you ever wondered where all those foods that appear on your table came from? The authors, working from two maps, one that details those products that were once exported to America, and another that collects those that were brought to the Iberian Peninsula from the other side of the Atlantic, look for answers via a formidable compendium of rigorous historical reviews, anecdotes, surprising statistics and curiosities. The links between cereals, spices, fruits, vegetables and legumes and literature are explored, with quotes from specific works and the reflections of poets and writers on food and its uses, together with an array of recipes. Edited with great taste and elegance, the book is a visual treat, and entertaining for any age.
