This book was called, “A massive amount of research…a solid contribution to culinary history,” by Andrew Smith, food historian and author. Elizabeth Williams, president of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans said of it, “belongs on the bookshelves of all historians. The development of soup is the development of civilization”. The book begins in the Biblical era and takes the reader through the second World War – with all the history of each period including a lengthy chapter on Native Americans. You will not find modern recipes masquerading as historic receipts and history in this book – it is factual and thorough, and the information came directly from primary sources. This book is available from McFarland Publishing Co. They will welcome your order, wholesale or retail.
