I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
This combines two of my favourite things: cooking and history. This is an amazing rags to riches story. The best part about it is that it's a true story. It also contains some amazing recipes. I can't wait to try them for myself!
