Life of St. Monica - F.A. Forbes - A Short Summary and Review

Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat - Bee Wilson - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Consider the Fork:

Why the fork we have table manners.

My favorite Bee Wilson quote from the book:

"The subtext of all table manners is the fear that the man next to you may pull his knife on you."

 Questions I pondered while reading Consider the Fork:

Knife or knife-less?

Was everyone just nicer to each other back then?

My review of Consider the Fork:

I love food!

I love history!

I would have starved prior if born prior to 1950.
