9781609611811: America the Edible: A Hungry History, from Sea to Dining Sea

Get ready to devour America. Adam Richman, the exuberant host of Travel Channel's Man v. Food and Man v. Food Nation, has made it his business to root out unique dining experiences from coast to coast. Now, he zeroes in on some of his top-favorite cities―from Portland, Maine, to Savannah, Georgia―to share his uproariously entertaining food travel stories, top finds, and some invaluable (and hilarious) cautionary tales. America the Edible also tells the story behind the menu, revealing the little-known reason why San Francisco's sourdough bread couldn't exist without San Francisco's fog; why Cleveland just might have some of the country's best Asian cuisine; and how to eat like a native on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Unflaggingly funny, curious, and, of course, hungry, Richman captures the spectacular melting pot of American cuisine as only a true foodie and insatiable storyteller can.

About the Author:

Adam Richman earned his master's degree from Yale University School of Drama and has appeared in episodes of Guiding Light, Law & Order, and All My Children. While traveling the country for regional theater roles, he worked many eclectic and far-flung restaurant jobs. Richman won the CableFAX award for Best Host: Food in 2009 and 2010 and was named one of Yahoo's Most Fascinating People, 2009. A New Yorker by birth, he now lives in Brooklyn.

Review:

“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

Book Description Rodale Incorporated, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
