Cook's Cook, Gavin Bishop
Through real recipes from the ship’s mess, events on board and the places the ship travelled on its way to the Pacific, the book tells multiple stories.
Here are stories of social class, hierarchy and race; stories of explorers and the people of the land; the story of one of the world’s most famous explorers told through a fresh new lens.
This beautiful children’s book is full of information drawn from extensive research alongside evocative illustrations, released to coincide with the 250th anniversary of the Endeavour’s journey.
''So much has been written about Captain Cook but this book gives a fresh perspective. You can tell so many different stories through food—everything is here: culture, class, adventure, humour and much more''
Julia Marshall, Publisher
