Summary
With the rise of the Food Network, chefs are the new hot celebrities and restaurants are no longer just about the food. How did the American dining experience change from mom-and-pop diners to fine dining in the span of a few decades? Author David Kamp shares the evolution of food in America through countless interviews and anecdotes.
Critique
Kamp produced a well-researched and detailed review of the evolution of food in America over the last century. All of the heavy-hitters in food are profiled - Child, Claiborne, Beard, Waters, and a slew of other chefs. Divided by trends in the food industry, this book is a fascinating summary of American food and culture.
