I REALLY need your help!
1-3 years ago, a young author wrote about about the history of food from a historical perspective. He had historical menus faithfully replicated in his book. I remember reading about him and his book in the New Yorker. I can even see the photo of him in my mind's eye - slim, short haired, mid-30's.
Was it an "Almanac" or an "encyclopedia" of sorts? It had sort of a formal title with a wink.
I’ve searched all over Amazon, Google, etc I’ve searched the archives of New Yorker, no luck.
I AM KICKING MYSELF for not remembering the title of his book or his name.
