Weaving together a fascinating history of people, culture, species and world events, Newman reveals why certain species have vanished and how it has affected culinary knowledge and impacted what we eat and don't eat.  Newman also examines how culinary extinction will affect our lives and what we can do about it.

An informative and insightful book that provides, excuse the pun, much food for thought.
