    This was a delightful discovery. Published in 1980 it is still current and Peter Farb and George Armelagos discuss in depth, but in a readable format the history of the culture of food preparation,dietary rules, the role of the feast as a social expression, hunger and so much more. It is only 218 pages plus comprehensive documentation and lists of resources.

    Do You Know Why --
    * Chicken soup is really good for colds?
    * Prunes were served in Elizabethan brothels?
    * We feed a cold and starve a fever?
    * The Aztecs were the most ferocious cannibals in history?
    * Men traditionally carve roasts at the dinner table today?

    These and hundred of other questions about the culinary habit of people around the world both past and present are answered for the first time.

    Why would Bantu society fall part without beer? Why do North Americans prefer canned orange juice to freshly squeezed? Why don['t the Chinese drink milkshakes?

    Why we are what we eat is fully and entertainingly explained in Consuming Passions -- the book about everyone's favorite obsession: food!"

    I've had this book forever -- probably since the 1980s. Since I joined GR and started listing books in the TBR pile, it became part of the queue and has just now bubbled to the top. I'm an anthro major and I should have adored this book. The blurb on the back sounds fascinating, doesn't it? But somehow I just couldn't get into it. And with so many books in my TBR pile, I felt as if I should move on. So I have. But maybe ... someday ...

    Some interesting information, although a lot of it struck me as old-fashioned and occasionally vague and unsubstantiated. The chapter on cannibalism felt like it would make a great source of material for underground cartoonists everywhere.

    Old info and now out of print, but a very interesting look at the evolution of eating habits and cultures around the world.
