Summary
"Discoveries, travels, conquests, and expansions during the Renaissance introduced Europeans to exotic cultures, mores, manners, and ideas. The cross-fertilization between the Old and the New Worlds, the East and the West brought new foods, preparations, and flavors. That culinary revolution led to the development of new utensils and table manners, initiating a way of eating that differed radically from medieval traditions. Some of the impact is still felt -- and tasted -- today."--Book jacket
