Synopsis

Tools For Food explores the history of 250 of our most-loved and intriguing kitchen items and how they've changed the way we live.



From 12th century Mongolian fire pots, to 17th century Chinese scissors, from beloved Tupperware food containers to the iconic Alessi lemon squeezer, this culinary journey covers well-loved designs, as well as lesser known objects.



The reader will be taken on a journey around the globe, exploring how and what we cook has changed over the centuries, showing similarities and diversity across times and cultures.



From primitive necessities to specialised high-tech equipment, each image is accompanied by a text detailing its origin, as well as interesting facts about its relationship between culture and cooking.
