READ Milk A 10000 Year Food Fracas SUMMARY Ê eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ¹ Mark Kurlansky Mark Kurlansky ¹ 8 FREE READ Mark Kurlansky's first global food history since the bestselling Cod and Salt; the fascinating cultural economic and culinary story of milk and all things dairy with recipes throughout According to the Greek creation myth we are so much spilt milk; a splatter of the goddess Hera's breast milk became our galaxy the Milky Way But while mother's milk may be the essence of nourishment it is the milk of other mammals that humans have cultivated ever since the domestication of animals than 10000 years ago originally as a s. First and foremost a large thank you to NetGalley Mark Kurlansky and Bloomsbury USA Publishing for providing me with a copy of this publication which allows me to provide you with an unbiased reviewI remember an advertising campaign from my youth that extolled the virtues and health benefits of drinking milk It stuck with me and I have tried to present the same positive outlook to my son When I saw the latest Mark Kurlansky book all about the history of milk I could not help but wonder if it would be an entertaining read as I knew he had tackled some other interesting food topics One may presume the topic is uite mundane or simplistic but the attentive reader will discover that milk and its byproducts are anything but boring though it is one area where history has only added to the controversies rather than neutralise them In a book that is as eye opening as it is refreshing Kurlansky offers the reader much insight into this product that has been a central part of history as long as female mammals have roamed the earthMilk has long been a controversial staple through the centuries from the debate between breastfeeding and delivering the essential nutrients to babies to the best type of milk for humans to consume and even whether to treat milk to make it safer for consumption Kurlansky details these and other debates throughout the pages of his book presenting arguments and views as they were documented throughout history There remains a strong debate over pasteurisation versus raw milk which has led to various parts of the world to adopt varying rules and regulations While many Western countries turn to cow s milk there are numerous other animals whose milk is widely used utilising the higher concentration of such mammals on differing terrains Liuid milk is only scratching the fatty surface of the discussion as Kurlansky talked extensively about the various byproducts Often discovered by accident byproducts include cheeses butters and creams though their variety can easily be forked into hundreds of different outcomes The history of cheese is both long and full of political intervention as Kurlansky discusses at length Creation of cheese can be a laborious process and is tightly regulated creating different colours flavours and consistencies Kurlansky explores not only how different milk determines key cheese creations but also the food intake of the cow that can vastly alter the end result Turning to creams history has seen the evolution of different products based not only on filtering techniues but also the ability to refrigerate or cool for lengthy periods of time Different people claim fame for various inventions that many take for granted now though there was surely a fierce debate at the time to launch the best clotted creams ice creams and desserts that stemmed from there Kurlansky also explores how different parts of the world tapped into shaping these byproducts with the local ingredients creating even differentiation across the globeThe political and social aspects of milk are firmly rooted particularly when government health and legislative bodies learned that they could levy fees and fierce regulations Milk can be a highly profitable industry though strict adherence can also lead to marginalizing those who have spent their life trying to make a living off dairy production Kurlansky turns the focus away from North America and delves deeply into the European and Asian markets which may shock some readers in the West There is surely a hierarchy when it comes to milk consumption as well as a fierce debate about how to treat the animals and the food they consumed There is no correct answer nor does Kurlansky try to steer the reader in any single direction but offers a wonderful cross section of information for a better understanding Readers and milk enthusiasts alike can enter the debate better armed for the battle Kurlansky s delivery of the topic at hand is so seamless as to create a story that flows with ease from beginning to end While there is so much to cover Kurlansky offers detailed discussions throughout without bogging the reader down with minutiae Not only does he provide a rich history of milk and its evolution but Kurlansky offers hundreds of recipes embedded in the narrative permitting the reader to explore the amusing side of milk s maturation Offering education and entertainment in eual doses Kurlansky provides the reader with a fulfilling historical tome that will fuel interesting discussions for all Any reader with a love of history and curiosity about food will surely find something they can enjoy in this book Milk It does a body good and so much Kudos Mr Kurlansky for such a wonderfully diverse piece I have learned so much and dazzled others with random facts that will stick with me for years to come Now I am convinced that I will have to find some of your other food histories and see how they compare Likehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons a different sort of Book Challenge
