As a preface, I have not finished listening to this audiobook. It was absolutely NOT what I was looking for. I was expecing it to be mostly about food science, chemistry, how food works - and how those principles apply to cooking. This book is much heavier on history and florid prose. I put it down after a couple hours - too much a danger to driving.
It may be a good book for what it was intended for - but I say no thank you.

If you love science and you love cooking.....
this book is for you! Dennis Holland is the perfect narrator for the rather dry and repetative nature of conventional scientific study! I'm on my third listen....So cool to explain the development of tannins in wine and butter's crystaline structure...very insightful and opens you up to new ideas for developing stocks and additions to creme anglaise....more of a fun read if you are a science nerd I'm sure!
