Publishers Text

What could be a more fun and delicious way to celebrate American culture than through the lore of our favorite foods That's what John T. Edge does in his smart, witty, and compulsively readable new series on the dishes everyone thinks their mom made best. If these are the best-loved American foods-ones so popular they've come to represent us-what does that tell us about ourselves And what do the history of the dish and the regional variations reveal

There are few aspects of life that carry more emotional weight and symbolism than food, and in writing about our food icons, Edge gives us a warm and wonderful portrait of America -by way of our taste buds. After all, What is patriotism, but nostalgia for the foods of our youth as a Chinese philosopher once asked.
