Summary
From the markets of medieval Europe to the slaughterhouses of twentieth-century Chicago, Madeleine Ferrihres offers a colorful and insightful history of how we've decided what "not" to eat. Ferrihres explores panics, myths, and changing attitudes regarding food as well as various attempts throughout history to ensure food safety. She demonstrates that fears of food have been inspired not only by safety concerns but also by cultural, political, and religious prejudices
