COD: a biography of the fish that changed the world by Mark Kurlansky
“A tale that spans a thousand years and four continents… From the Vikings, who pursued the codfish across the Atlantic, to the enigmatic Basques, who first commercialized it in medieval times, to Bartholomew Gosnold, who named Cape Cod in 1602, and Clarence Birdseye, who founded an industry on frozen cod in the 1930s, Mark Kurlansky introduces the explorers, merchants, writers, chefs, and fishermen, whose lives have interwoven with this prolific fish. Embellished with gastronomic detail, recipes and lore, COD is a story that brings world history and human passions into captivating focus.”
