Be in the room where it happens with this seat-at-the-table glimpse into great moments in history lubricated by great food and drink. Struan Stevenson explores 10 power meals, from French wine wooing Thomas Jefferson's continental palate as he talked turkey with his rival Alexander Hamilton, and Bonnie Prince Charlie's leg of lamb dinner before the Battle of Culloden, and Adolf Hitler feasting on schweinwürst and sauerkraut while getting Austrian chancellor Kurt von Schuschnigg to agree to the complete integration of Austria into the Third Reich. Celebrity chef Tony Singh painstakingly researched and recreated 55 recipes to accompany Stevenson's insights into the appetites and impetuses of some the characters who shaped world history.
