Wilson’s engaging history of cooking and eating implements makes clear from the start that these items are part of our civilization and its history, shaped by what we eat but also shaping our ideas about what is edible. Thoughtful and wide-ranging, <i>Consider the Fork</i> is full of surprising details about everything from an Icelandic bread baked by burying it in the earth near geothermal springs to Albert Einstein’s design for a refrigerator. Very worthwhile. Paperback.
