@Download Kindle ñ What the Great Ate: A Curious History of Food and Fame ´ What was eating them And vice versa In What the Great Ate, Matthew and Mark Jacob have cooked up a bountiful sampling of the peculiar culinary likes, dislikes, habits, and attitudes of famous and often notorious figures throughout history Here is food As code Benito Mussolini used the phrase we re making spaghetti to inform his wife if he d be illegally dueling later that day As superstition Baseball star Wade Boggs credited his on field success to eating chicken before nearly every game In service to country President Thomas Jefferson, America s original foodie, introduced eggplant to the United States and wrote down the nation s first recipe for ice cream From Emperor Nero to Bette Davis, Babe Ruth to Barack Obama, the bite size tidbits in What the Great Ate will whet your appetite for tantalizing trivia I m sure this book is fun and full of facts, but the short anecdote structure does not make for enjoyable reading. This isn t a book to just sit down and read it s the type of book you read when you only have 5 15 minutes of reading time It s a trivia book of answers of what famous people ate and how. A fun and lighthearted read The Great are the usual mostly White, Western people The Food tidbits are food related but not actually about what they actually ate Disappointing.
