Tanya Eby's smooth narration whets the listener's appetite as she explains how species extinction translates to culinary extinction. Eby's delivery deftly conveys the blend of history, science, and casual commentary in this examination of how the extinction of various species has led to the disappearance of foods and culinary knowledge. In a resonant voice, Eby tells intriguing stories of once-plentiful flora and fauna, such as the woolly mammoth and passenger pigeon. As the author highlights how their disappearance--due to the encroachment of humans and their mechanization--has impacted the foods available for us to feast upon, the significance of each extinct species is also clearly made. Eby provides a thought-provoking listening experience for lovers of food, history, and the environment. M.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
