The course of His­tory: Ten Meals that Changed the World

Scottish Field - - COVER TO COVER -

BY STRUAN STEVEN­SON BIRLINN £16.99 This uniquely en­gag­ing read is per­fect for those who com­bine a love for his­tory with a pas­sion for food. In The Course Of His­tory: Ten Meals that Changed the World the un­likely duo of politi­cian and award-win­ning au­thor Struan Steven­son and Leith chef Tony Singh MBE join forces to give us an in­sight into meals which changed the world. From Bon­nie Prince Char­lie’s lav­ish ban­quet on the eve of the Bat­tle of Cul­lo­den to the New York din­ner party art­fully de­vised by Thomas Jef­fer­son to per­suade James Madison and Thomas Hamil­ton to con­firm Washington DC as the capital of the USA, Steven­son of­fers de­tailed ac­counts of the per­son­al­i­ties, events and food in­volved. Each chap­ter ends with recipes so you can make the same meals eaten by the in­flu­en­tial din­ers of yesteryear. Steven­son’s char­ac­ter­is­tic writ­ing, nicely sea­soned with Singh’s mouth-wa­ter­ing meals make a de­li­cious com­bi­na­tion.
