Recommended by ......mmmmm....don't recall. I think I heard it on an interview on NPR....actually an interesting read if you are interested in HOW we came to be a gourmet nation. Does make one hungry however...

I was first introduced to an excerpt of this book by reading a short article in VANITY FAIR just a few months ago. After reading that VANITY FAIR article, I was hooked and I HAD to have this book. Glad I bought it too!

This book is very well written. The author writes smoothly and each chapter is filled with such fascinating facts and stories about the world of cooking and eating.

I'm glad I bought this book.

This book is amazing. I'm a food writer and thought I knew a ton about the modern history of American food. This author humbled me. His book is loaded with relevent, interesting, often intimate information. And it's all written well. Even the credits are entertaining! Kudos to this guy for taking the time do a job well.

A friend gave me this book and I can't put it down. This is a real culinary treat that captures the culinary revolution that changed the way we eat. The writing is engaging and I love reading about the pioneers that I grew up with. I never realized the impact that James Beard, Julia Child and Craig Claiborne had on my diet today. Now I see them in a whole new light.

Great book. Easy shopping. I am a culinary student and very busy. Shopping on line, quick response and there at my home. No parking, traffic, or checkout lines. Graet service.
