Deconstructing the Impact of European Colonialism on Food and Cooking: Exciting News

I must share some exciting news, exciting for me, anyway.

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers have contracted with me to write a book which I have tentatively titled From the Other Side of the Table: The Impact of European Colonialism on Global Food, for publication in 2016.

  1. Thank you, Alex. Yes, Mushroom: A Global History was my first book, And, yes, Kurlansky’s Salt was one of the first to explore a single food subject on a wide scale. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Congratulations! This sounds very interesting! I’ve always been intrigued by recipes and food preparations travelling the world. Do you know the book Salt by Mark Kurlansky? I loved it! Anyway, will check out the rest of your blog now, I see something about mushrooms at the bottom of this page. X Alex
