BREAKFAST BOOK

ANDREW DALBY    Book Number: 82418    Product format: Paperback

What do you want for breakfast this morning? Rice and miso soup? Cereal, eggs or doughnuts? Often called 'the most important meal of the day', Dalby explores the components that go into breakfast across countries and the globe. Delving into 3,000 years of literature memoirs and art to explore the first literary breakfast in the Odyssey, Jesus, and Friar Bacon and Friar Bungay by Robert Greene, we are introduced to the variety of breakfasts that differ between societies and individuals. Not only do we hear about the breakfast of princes with 'chickennes', 'mutton' and 'beere', but we learn about today's breakfasts - whether Burmese sticky rice with fried fish on a banana leaf, or toast, kedgeree, or chocolate and churros in Spain and bacon and eggs over here. Including recipes, technicolour images and the history of the meal, all you need to do is crack out the knife and fork and get ready to devour a commentary on this meal! 232pp, paperback.
