Cooking in World Cultures

Have you ever wondered what people of the ancient world ate for breakfast? How about lunch or dinner? This compelling series of books will answer those questions and more! The beginning of the book provides an overview of the ancient civilization, followed by a series of two-page spreads devoted to many different topics pertaining to cooking and eating centuries ago.
