This might not be a cook book, but it does tell the story of the objects created and used to cook.

A 4th century Korean fermenting crock, to a 17th century Chinese scissors, to a 20th century Gold plated Juicer from Italy - each and every tool for food contributes to the way we eat, cook and live today. Corinne Mynatt’s fascination with food, food cultures, its history and design cumulate together in this book, bringing us on a fascinating journey that will delight foodies, designers, antique lovers, and tool enthusiasts alike.

Its handsome embossed cover and bold graphic design bring the pages alive and it is filled with little-known facts, engaging stories and photographs and illustrations throughout.

Each chapter takes the reader through a different category of tool, bringing them on a journey around the globe, exploring how and what we cook has changed over the centuries, and highlighting some of the similarities and diversity across times and cultures.
