Why We Eat What We Eat
How the Encounter Between the New World and the Old Changed the Way Everyone on the Planet EatsBook - 1991
From the publisher's description: "In this lively and informative history of the world as seen from a gourmet's table, Raymond Solokov explains how all of us--Europeans, Americans, and Asians--came to eat what we eat today. For readers in the midest of the nouvelle cuisine revolution, Why We Eat What We Eat shows how the very idea of culinary 'authenticity' ignores the 500-year revolution in food history that began with Columbus."
