Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an Food: A Cultural Culinary History gefallen?
Interesting topic, well researched and presented. Learned quite a lot about the history of food.
Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?
Unfortunately, Mr Albala's interjection of a 'right?" or 'ok?' at the end of many sentences is rather irritating. The course was entertaining as such though

The kitchen POV
This lecture series gives you the history of mankind from the kitchen POV: what we eat through the ages and why. Always interesting, sometimes funny, never disgusting!
Professor Ken Albala presents various cuisines (with recipes – the fun part) that developed through the ages, arriving in our modern area with industrialised agriculture and food industries. All of it making much sense and giving many insights, but with a strong emphasis on the situation in the USA. As he frequently points out: Europe is (still?) different.
I can strongly recommend this lecture series: mind-food that tastes well.
