In "America the Edible", Travel Channel host Adam Richman tackles the ins and outs of American cuisine, demonstrating his own unique brand of culinary anthropology. Believing that regional cuisine reveals far more than just our taste for chicken fried steak or 3-way chilli, Richman explores the ethnic, economic, and cultural factors that shape the way we eat - and how food, in turn, reflects who we are as a nation. Richman uses his signature wit and casual charm to take you on a tour around the country, explaining such curiosities as why bagels are shaped like circles, why fried chicken is so popular in the South, and how some of the most iconic American food - hot dogs, fries, and soda - are not really American at all. Writing with passion, curiosity, and a desire to share his knowledge, he includes recipes, secret addresses for fun and tasty finds, and tips on how to eat like a local from coast to coast.

Recensioner i media

"Richman's genuine, contagious enthusiasm for food keeps America the Edible enjoyable. His descriptions of favorite dishes are tantalizing, detailed, and accessible. He's more prone to visiting a standout hot-dog joint than an haute-cuisine spot, making the book useful for travelers, with even more utility provided by sidebars on how to tell an authentic eatery from a tourist trap." --The Onion's AV Club
