review Spice: The History of a Temptation 109 In this brilliant engrossing work Jack Turner explores an erafrom ancient times through the Renaissancewhen what we now consider common condiments were valued in gold and bloodSpices made sour medieval wines palatable camouflaged the smell of corpses and served as wedding night aphrodisiacs Indispensible for cooking medicine worsh. I found this book very enjoyable to read with a wealth of information and a liberal sprinkling of humor Turner provides insightful information on the historical value of spices and their many applications dividing his monograph into thematic sections My only complaint is with the somewhat shoddy physical construction of the bookit split down the middle after one reading and is separating from the spine and I ve noticed that my classmates are having the same issue This of course does not reflect on the content of the book but it is something I feel buyers should be aware of I ll edit this later with a photo of the book and a link to my upcoming much thorough review on WordPress
