Description - The Gannet's Gastronomic Miscellany by Killian Fox

gannet

noun

1. a large seabird with mainly white plumage, which catches fish by plunging into the water.

2. British informal, a greedy person.

THE GANNET'S GASTRONOMIC MISCELLANY goes beyond the usual food fixations. Presented in a fresh, visually inventive style, it will appeal to anyone with a passing interest in food - which, in this gastronomy-obsessed age, is pretty much all of us.

In this compendious hotpot of a book you'll find a guide to creating a hit food profile on Instagram, a cross-section of a tiffin box, an explainer on craft beer, the origin story of chicken Marengo, a list of millennia-old products that are still edible today (should you be brave enough to try Irish bog butter or Ancient Egyptian honey) and many more delightful nuggets of information.
