    Since prehistory, humans have braved the business ends of knives, scrapers, and mashers, all in the name of creating something delicious - or at least edible. In Consider the Fork, award-winning food writer and historian Bee Wilson traces the ancient lineage of our modern culinary tools, revealing the startling history of objects we often take for granted. Charting the evolution of technologies from the knife and fork to the gas range and the sous-vide cooker, Wilson offers unprecedented insights.

    What disappointed you about Consider the Fork?

    I buy audiobooks for my wife to listen to on her daily commute to work. Typically I get praise for my selections. She is a foodie and has read academic works in different culinary areas. Despite repeated efforts to get through this book, she found the content too dry to finish thus breaking my streak of great selections. This book caters to a niche that is far too narrow for audiobook enthusiasts. In short, if your looking for something to listen to on a long drive or commute, better get a coffee before you get behind the wheel.

    No.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
