DEVOURED: From Chicken Wings to Kale Smoothies — How What We Eat Defines Who We Are
by Sophie Egan
In this entertaining investigation of the habits of American eaters, Egan, a director in the strategic initiatives group of the Culinary Institute of America, examines how eating habits have changed in the past 50-plus years. … Egan studies the creation of “food holidays” as well, days that revolve as much around food as the actual event (think Super Bowl), and novelty foods … The author tells readers how and why these items have become part of America’s food culture and speculates on where American food habits will take us in the future. An occasionally humorous, definitely informative look at what Americans eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all those snack times in between and how our eating habits are changing who we are.
