This book is filled with the history of baking powder. I did not realize that there was such a war between different brands. This one little product changed the way that people around the world would bake fro 1856 to the present. Even though she focused on the top brands she did mention how there were over a hundred that were vying for the consumers' business.
This unique history book was fascinating to me, a history buff. I wasn't sure what to expect but I found it interesting.
I was given this book by NetGalley and University of Illinois Press in exchange for my honest review.
