Description: In a highly entertaining, anecdotal style, Leslie Brenner traces the American relationship to food, cooking, and eating from the Pilgrims through to America's obsession with arugula -- and beyond. Her book focuses on the variety of forces that converged in the late '60s to revolution American cuisine, transforming it from meatloaf and potatoes to an unprecedented global fusion of styles and flavors, all in the course of 30 years. With chapters such as "How We Lost Gastronomy", "Why Julia Child Captured Our Imagination", and "It's Delicious, But Is It Cuisine?", Brenner combines natural history, social history, and memoir to concoct a thoroughly absorbing cultural history of cooking and eating in America.
