Editorial Reviews

Review

“David Kamp has seduced a tootle of food world idols into spilling the beans about who did what to whom in the decades when America was becoming obsessed with food. His Arugula world is juicy, irreverent, and full of bite.” —Gael Greene

“With the sweep of an epic novel, David Kamp takes us behind the scenes and into the sweaty, wacky, weird trenches of the Great American Food Revolution. His reporting is solid, his storytelling magnificent and his good humor is seemingly inexhaustible. I can’t imagine a better guide for touring the United States of Arugula. This is a terrific book.” —Molly O’Neill, author of Mostly True: A Memoir of Food, Family and Baseball

“A great trip down memory lane and a must read for anyone passionate about the American food world of the last fifty years.” —Jacques Pépin

“There’s plenty of dish in this insider’s view of America’s gastronomic coming-of-age—read all about the food fights and the food phonies. The United States of Arugula is as racy as it is relevant. I couldn’t put it down!” —Jean Anderson, author, The American Century Cookbook

“A smart, engaging account of how serious foodies brought fresh, new, and delicious meals to American tables. Kamp’s deep understanding, appreciation, and respect for the key players in this history make his book a riveting read.” —Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics and What to Eat

“[The United States of Arugula] is something almost everybody—but particularly those who have been caught up in upgrading their own food habits to ‘gourmet’ status—can mightily enjoy. . . . All the stars are here, from breakfast ’til midnight snack, in a page-turning insider’s guide with an emphasis on ‘dish.’ ” R...
