The Political and The Culinary

I wrote a post for Fruits of our Labour inspired by Stewart Lee Allen's book, In the Devil's Garden: Sinful History of Forbidden Food. The post references Allen's examination of cuisine to control a populace, but his book isn't just limited to politics; it examines the role of food in culture throughout history. It's a great read, both interesting and entertaining. Pick it up when you have the chance.
