About The Cambridge World History Of Food

Edited by Kenneth F. Kiple and Kriemhild Coneè Ornelas, and described by BBC Good Food Magazine as 'Unparalleled in its knowledge and content.', The Cambridge World History Of Food was published in two volumes by Cambridge University Press in 2000.

Since then, it has become the go-to resource for anyone studying (or simply curious of) food history and the impact it has had on cultures around the world.
