10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Carlos Oliveira Siffert on January 15, 2007
From contemporary food design to the spectacle of eighteenth-century aristocratic feasts, this book examines the history of cutlery and dining ritual. A broad offering of [great, beautiful] pictures, and collection of texts that explore the social meanings and fascinating forms of table settings. A truly fascinating book. Somewhat specific, but highly recommended!

It is a brilliant, well crafted and informative book. The illustrations are beautiful. A remarkable and interesting reference book. It was a really pleasant surprised when it arrived. Great cultural notes and psychology of dining. A niche book that transcends its genre spectacularly.

If you are interested in food, you may have an interest in eating utensils as well. I love the plethora of historical information in this book. It is such a visual pleasure and delight. The color photos are exquisite and you can see every detail of silverware and serving ware. Once you open this book, it will transport you to artisans' souls. Beautiful, beautiful 'tools of the table', and it will give you a new perspective stunning craftsmanship and on how our dining habits evolved.
