Example text

The shish kebab-the universal gifi of Central Asian cuisine-is more likely to have been cooked in antiquity on a dagger. THE INVENTION OF COOKING At their most solemn feasts, however, most peoples tend to eat their most traditional foods and among the steppeland nomads this means reverting to cooking in skins and stomachs and guts. Sharon Hudgins is the author of the most vivid modern accounts of steppeland dining experiences. She was served with a sheep's head in its skin, wool intact, at a Buriat banquet in 1994.

An Italian visitor to the pampa in 1910was struck by thed'utterlyprimitive" way the gauchos cooked their meat in the hide "so that it conserves its bloody juices" and ate it with razors while seated on tree trunks. The early cook's solution was the invention of the hot-stone griddle: using fire to heat stones, and hot stones to cook food on. This is particularly effective for foods that come naturally wrapped by coatings which retain moisture while being permeated by heat-mollusks by their shells, for instance, or some kinds of fruits or wild grains by thick or densely fibrous husks.
