Whether it's the silver tea service or grandmother's battered wooden spoon, family heirlooms connected with cooking, eating, or imbibing have been, for many of us, passed down through generations. Some people collect salt shakers, iced-tea spoons, or egg cups; Patrick Dunne has made a career of collecting and researching the history of fascinating and beautiful culinary implements, and his accumulated wealth of knowledge has now been collected in a book. Illuminating a wide variety of subjects, from absinthe spoons to café au lait bowls, Dunne shares his expertise with verve and authority. Lavishly illustrated, part food history, part connoisseur's handbook, The Epicurean collector will appeal to a broad readership interested in antiques as well as in the more general areas of food presentation, entertaining, and style at the table.
