Despite minute research, an original approach and great enthusiasm on behalf of the author "Much depends on dinner" suffers from lack of good editing. Instead of clearly separating history, mythology, eating customs and modern production technique it all gets mushed together into an indigestible porridge. I only made it through five chapters before abandoning the book.

Fairly interesting survey of the many rituals and customs surrounding eating in various cultures.

Comprehensive. If you only have time to read 1 page- make it 335. :)

Exactly my kind of book. It takes one aspect of our lives and dissects it, comparing current beliefs and practices with other cultures and times. What I learned: culture is weird :)

What I didn't like: sometimes the author repeats herself and the ending was quite abrupt.
