Description
From the author of Paris to the Moon comes this beguiling tour of the morals and manners of America's present food mania, in search of the deeper truths of eating. Never before have we cared so much about food; it preoccupies our popular culture, our fantasies, and even our moralizing. But have we come any closer to discovering the true meaning of food in our lives? With platefuls of charm and perception, Adam Gopnik explores our recent and rapid evolution from commendably aware eaters to manic, compulsive gastronomes.

"Gopnik would surely be the world's greatest dinner guest; he can make any subject fascinating, and always backs up his curiosity with unhurried research and an acute eye for the telling detail."—Chicago Tribune

"Gopnik is the nearest thing there is—in the English-speaking world, at any rate—to a philosopher of food.... These essays blend enormous erudition with great elegance of expression, and pack intellectual firepower too."—New Statesman
