Why do we associate Argentina with steak? Why do people in Marseille eat bouillabaisse? What’s the story behind the curries of India? Bubbling over with anecdotes, trivia, and lore—from the role of a priest in the genesis of camembert to the Mayan origins of the word “chocolate”—The World on a Plate serves up a delicious mélange of recipes, history, and culinary wisdom to be devoured by food lovers and armchair travelers alike.
