From the history of ranch dressing and marshmallows to food prep techniques, the answers are right here in this whimsically illustrated coffee table compendium that spotlights 100 different foods, from the banal to the bizarre.

Packed with tons of food facts and tips, and featuring delightful illustrations and hand-drawn text, Eat This Book is perfect for visual learners and the culinary-curious. Handy as a kitchen reference, but pretty enough for a coffee table, it will inspire you to acquaint yourself with unfamiliar produce from the farmer’s market (jackfruit or lotus root, anyone?), or find a new appreciation for old stand-bys (ketchup, cinnamon, coffee) that are already lurking in your fridge or cupboard.
