An engaging look at "food prejudices," or why we eat what we eat and why we reject other food sources as unpalatable--with recipes!

It will not, of course, appeal to all palates . . . but neither do snails and sweetbreads, brains and other oddments of animals." --Craig Claiborne "I read from cover to cover with huge enjoyment. . .
