Some brief overview of book
A fascinating, funny and downright bizarre survey of culinary oddities by one of Australia’s most beloved comedians. In this irreverent romp through the history of food via the Seven Deadly Sins, Mikey Robins uncovers the most bizarre food-related stories of all time. From the Ancient Egyptians to the Romans, from the medieval monarchs to our current obsession with celebrity chefs, our forebears have left their mark on our habits and social mores, our plates and our palates, telling us one truth above all: where there is food, there is folly.
On the topic of GLUTTONY,Mikey exposes our obsession with outlandish overconsumption and the thrill of competitive eating. PRIDEreveals some of the most arrogant dinner hosts in history, and how the once humble chef has now achieved rock-god status. LUST sheds light on our aphrodisiac fixations and the most desired foods through time.
SLOTH charts the curious evolution of the fork and the etiquette of flatulence. WRATH tells of sausage duels and poisonous spite, while GREED will make you blush at the indulgences of the rich and famous. And who hasn’t experienced ENVY when your dining companion’s plate sings while yours sputters?
Mikey Robins is your personal guide down history’s gullet and into the underbelly of our wildest desires, darkest fears and guiltiest pleasures.
