How And Where America Eats . November 20, 2005, 1:51 AM, CBS. When Americans eat out at restaurants, it's American food they choose, though tastes for Mexican, Italian and Chinese food vary from region to region. But most Americans still cook at home most nights, with many men doing at least some of that cooking. And wherever they may eat, most families with children report they are still eating dinner together at least three nights per week. Dinner has often been a time for families to get together at the end of a hectic day.

How America Eats: A Social History of U.S. Food and Culture, by food and social historian Jennifer Wallach, sheds a new and interesting light on American history by way of the dinner table. It is, at once, a study of America’s diverse culinary history and a look at the country’s unique and unprecedented journey to the present day. While undeniably a “melting pot” of different cultures and cuisines, America’s food habits have been shaped as much by technological innovations and industrial progress as by the intermingling and mixture of ethnic cultures. By studying what Americans have been eating since the colonial era, we are further enlightened to the conflicting ways in which Americans have chosen to define themselves, their culture, their beliefs, and the changes those definitions have undergone over time. Understanding the American diet is the first step toward grasping the larger truths, the complex American narratives that have long been swept under the table, and the evolving answers to the question: What does it mean to be American?

I am a historian by trade. This is the first time that I have examined history through foodways. The book opened up a whole new perspective on American history. Well worth the read.

Delirium
Interesting read. It wasn't quite the page turner, but it wasn't a sleepy read either.

I enjoyed reading about American history through the history of our food. Heavy on the history, but also readable and entertaining. Our cultural history and our food are very connected to each other.

Opimath
I recently purchased this item thinking it would be more easier to read and manage, but its just annoying. It skip and jumps pages. It is not user friendly. I don't own a kindle but I do own a iPad Air. I don't know if that may be the issue, but kindle should fix it! I wont ever purchase a digital copy of anything on Amazon!
