Reviews

"Oneof the finest cultural histories of recent times. Helstosky shows there is much we can learn about the history of a society from its culinary culture. Marvellous." --Paul Lay, BBC History

"Packed with fascinating insights." --The Guardian

"The topic is alluring, the style accessible...It is very timely to have a book on Italian food that is a work of serious scholarship...[This is] a book that many of us have been waiting for." --Robert Lumley, University College London

"Her exploration of the origins and survival of the 'Mediterranean diet' from Mussolini to the present makes Garlic and Oil an original and immensely readable contribution to the rapidly growing literature on food and its many histories." --John A. Davis, University of Connecticut

"In this fascinating study Carol Helstosky shows that politics play no less a role than culture, environment and the social order in shaping what we eat. Her exploration of the origins and survival of the 'Mediterranean diet' from Mussolini to the present makes Garlic Oil an original and immensely readable contribution to the rapidly growing literature on food and its many histories." --John A. Davis, University of Connecticut
