I'm half-way through this book, and I've enjoyed it. It details the rise of foodie-ism in the U.S., describing people like James Beard, Mollie Katzen, Dean and Deluca. Hard to believe institutions like Celestial Seasonings were actually started by a hippie with a taste for tea. The author loves gossip but he can be snide about everyone ex. Irma Rombauer gets a footnote about writing the Joy of Cooking a year after her husband committed suicide.
