The Gannet's Gastronomic Miscellany by Killian Fox is a collection of fascinating facts and surreal stories about food and the people consuming it. The worst jobs in kitchen history, Hollywood's love affair with Japanese whisky, the politics of food emojis, Liberace’s recipe for shish kebabs – it tackles all these topics and more. If you want to know about obscure cutlery or radioactive bananas, 5,000-year-old bog butter or exotic creatures that do (and do not) taste like chicken, this is the book for you.
