Description - The Taste of America by Colman Andrews
America is a melting pot, a fact reflected nowhere better than in kitchen pantries. The American palette is as diverse as the cultures that make it up. So, what does America taste like?
The Taste of America is an anthology of edible Americana, the first and only compendium of the best food made in the USA-from Alabama to Wisconsin and everywhere in between. Written by James Beard-award winning food writer and passionate eater Colman Andrews, the book features everything from the best fresh ingredients and artisanal products to regional delicacies and multi-national brands.
The Taste of America reveals 250 of the best regional products from coast to coast, such as Humboldt Fog Cheese, Blue Point Oysters, Granola, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Junior Mints, Meyer Lemons, Kreuz's Sausage, Maple Syrup, Anson Mills Grits, Whoopie Pies, and more. Never before has a book reflected American food culture so clearly, and at the same time been so entertaining, well-researched and fascinating to read.
Structured by chapters according to food type-including snacks, dairy, condiments, drinks, meat, baked goods, and desserts-each entry reveals the product's unique history and production methods and highlights their greatest producers. The Taste of America includes 125 color drawings and an extensive index with a directory providing details of how to buy or order each product.
The book is the perfect gift for anyone who loves American food.
