This study delves into the history of how we eat and why we eat what we do.

The journey goes from the start of humanity right through to the industrialism of the modern age. Starting with the notion of our decision to cook our food, Felipe Fernandez-Armesto introduces us to the revolutions which influenced our culinary habits, and he describes how food changed and changed us through the centuries, on the way explaining why "You are what you eat".
