"Some of the world’s most adventurous food historians contribute to this thrice-yearly journal of articles and excerpts from works in progress. The emphasis is on plain writing rather than jargon. Among the articles in this issue:
  • Bridget Ann Henish on the use and sourcing of paper in pre-industrial English kitchens
  • Philip Hyman on Jules Maincave, who first translated the ideals of the Futurist movement into cooking
  • Angelia Jianu on the differences between polenta and mămăligă and why one caught the imagination of Western Europeans
  • Gary Gillman on butter tarts
  • Sarah Benjamin on cookbook author Maria Rundell and her long-running court case against publisher John Murray
  • Book reviews take a sabbatical in this issue, with a promise that they will indeed return
Paperback.    "
