Editorial Reviews

Review

"Each book in the Edible Series describes a food or drink—its history, how it has evolved and how it has figured in various cultures across civilization. . . . Printed on heavy, rich stock with drawings and color photos, they are an appetizing bunch."
(Susan Salter Reynolds Los Angeles Times )

An amazing history of the...well...history of caviar. As well as a forward look at the future of caviar and the sturgeon that produce it!
Interesting recipes, a light sense of humor and really cool period pictures as well as stories all masterfully strung together by what is clearly a talented editor and author.
