The Best Thing I Ever Tasted

The Secret of Food

Overview

From the publisher

Eating is the most common way to celebrate in our culture, the most visible way to indulge ourselves. And yet few things have such power over our lives — it controls us as consumers, as social animals, as guilty creatures of appetite.

Through a lively mixture of history, memoir, sociology and family recipe, Tisdale explores our public and private attitudes about food, drawing a rich portrait of the many forces behind our American appetite and demystifying the everyday miracle of eating.
