Some very interesting insights connecting the art of breathd-making and consumption with global and local events. I knew about the connection between bread and the French Revolution, but most of the other connections boggled my mind, especially since there miht well be more than a simple grain of possible truth in them.
Great book! An eye-opening review of the history of wheat and it's effect on civilization. A must for history buffs!Chef Perryjoinmykitchen.com
Good book on the history of bread, but the first section on the Bread of Prehistoric Man is basically speculation based on evolutionary theory without any historical data to verify his conclusions. Of course, Jacob lived before the major weaknesses of evolutionary theory had been demonstrated. If you like bread, this book is a good resource to have.
