Freelance writer and researcher Claire S. Cabot combines her love of history with her love for cooking to give readers “A Short History of Ingredients” (published by Xlibris). The new book provides interesting information and entertaining bits of trivia regarding the common components of everyday kitchen recipes.
Cabot became fascinated with the plethora of ingredients available to 21st century cooks and how these items were used in the past. For example, her book reveals that in the thirteenth century, strawberries were considered an aphrodisiac while garlic was used as an antibiotic during World War II. She also shows how people continue to develop new species of foods even today, such as Rock Cornish game hens and Fuji apples, two perfect examples of new 20th century varieties.
These interesting facts also come with Cabot’s own delicious recipes. “A Short History of Ingredients” makes cooking a learning experience.
