From the mind that brought you SCHOTTS ORIGINAL MISCELLANY comes a collection of vital irrelevance and uncommon knowledge surrounding the worlds of food and drink. SCHOTTS FOOD AND DRINK MISCELLANY is a snapper up of unconsidered trifles (in both senses of the word) - from food history to cooking terms; cocktail recipes to dining etiquette; grace before meals to after-dinner toasts. What other book can tell you the accepted procedure when drinking from a Loving Cup; which potatoes are best for mashing; how to fold your napkins into a variety of pleasing shapes; the correct technique for lighting a cigar, or a Christmas pudding; or how to make the legendary Monster Egg? SCHOTTS FOOD AND DRINK MISCELLANY offers all this - and more. It will inform you of the King who served foie gras to his dog; the feast where guests ate in fear of their lives; the socialite who spiked his punch with benzedrine; and the dining club whose members ate their meals in reverse. An olla podrida of all that is pertinent to wining, dining and socialising, SCHOTTS FOOD AND DRINK MISCELLANY offers everything for the food-lover, wine-drinker, gastronome and glutton.
