american FoodieMy book on the philosophy of food is now in production. Cool cover, eh?

Entitled American Foodie: Taste, Art, and the Cultural Revolution, it is all about how a love of food will set us free. I attempt to explain the emergence of food and drink as a dominant cultural force in the U.S. and assess its prospects for producing cultural change.

The publisher Rowman Littlefield has scheduled the release for January.
