    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.

    Amazon Customer says: "Intriguing history of everyday utensils"

    What made the experience of listening to Consider the Fork the most enjoyable?

    The reader was clearly, engaging and the tempo was very good. The writing was amazingly thought provoking.


    What other book might you compare Consider the Fork to and why?

    I've been looking for other books as I've never read anything quite so engaging. It reminded me a bit of the James Burke show "Connections"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    By far the chapter on Pots and Pans were quite interesting, and the one on refrigeration.
