Learn where in the world the annual monkey banquet is held, which gourmet chefs prepare a feast for pampered primates, why Eliza Acton’s Modern Cookery for Private Families was such a runaway success in 1845, the science and theory behind the many different ways you can prevent an onion from making you cry, and the unbeatably healthy properties of fruit.
