food anatomy

Flipping through Julia Rothman's latest this afternoon.  We love seeing the world of food—with its more familiar fare and its lesser known oddities—through her thoughtful eye and distinctive style.  One of our favorite pages: curd nerdisms, which introduced us to the concept of "transhumance."  Glad to be able to brush up on our short order egg lingo, learn about delectable dumplings from around the world, and so much more, all in one sitting.

Food Anatomy: The Curious Parts & Pieces of Our Edible World was written and illustrated by Julia Rothman, with help from Rachel Wharton.  From Storey Publishing.
