History in Delicious is a middle grade level book perfect for a budding foodie. I do wish there were more recipes and pictures. Even I had a hard time picturing all of the delicious sounding foods that were described and there was only one recipe per geographic area. However, all of the different foods described did spark my interest in going out and trying some different things. I also think maps would have been helpful to pinpoint where exactly each food was from. I did enjoy the honesty in showing how food has blended through history and passed through cultures
Definitely made me want to try some new dishes and expanded my sense of what foods are out there.
