‘Our readers will be information hungry but time poor. They want to eat good food, they want to know good food, but they want it quickly and they want it now.’ This is the principle behind the brilliant new book Taste: The Infographic Book of Food, which provides an educational but entertaining visual dialogue for readers. From courgettes to champagne, author Laura Rowe and illustrator Vicki Turner have crafted a beautiful informative book.
Did you know one glass of champagne contains one million bubbles? Or where the ‘coupe’ glass design supposedly comes from?
Just roll with it: Taste also gives brief explanations about how to prepare and eat certain foods, including sushi.
The book aims to deliver a witty, creative and historically grounded introduction to readers about food.
With original designs and interesting information, this book appeals to children and adults alike.
