Eat History offers fascinating new insights into the emerging field of gastronomic studies and its intersection with cultural history, and includes the writing of nine leading historians on topics ranging from vodka to patty cakes. Though primarily focused on Australia, the transnational nature of many of the essays widens the scope to include Russia and the British Empire, as well as Italy. With its engaging and entertaining tone, the volume will prove to be of interest not only to researchers and academics in the field, but to more general readers keen to discover how the consideration of food opens up whole new areas of history and points the way to fruitful future inquiry.
