A Visual History of Cookery is a review of the visual representation of food historically and globally. The book looks at food throughout the ages, the development of food branding, the culture of celebrity chefs and the stylization of the cookbook.
The book is split into sections which explore the culinary traditions from Italy, France, Spain and the USA, with vibrant food photography and illustrations depicting cooking methods, celebrated dishes, eating habits and food festivals. A Visual History of Cookery also takes a look at the iconic branding behind the food we buy and the restaurants we eat in—from McDonalds to the critically acclaimed El Bulli. Alongside features on celebrity chefs including Gordon Ramsay, Delia Smith, Giorgio Locatelli and the fictional Betty Crocker.
