Much Depends on Dinner

This book is an unusual excursion into the origins and background of an ordinary dinner: corn on the cob, chicken with rice, lettuce salad and ice-cream. Tracing the historical, cultural, agricultural and social strands that run through their history, the author presents the reader with a sparkling and breathtakingly erudite 'anthropology of everyday life'.
