The Best Thing I Ever Tasted by Sallie Tisdale
The Best Thing I Ever Tasted

grisham777, September 19, 2006

Wow, is this ever a refreshing look at the food we eat! "The Best Thing I Ever Tasted" takes us on a fascinating and in-depth journey through what has led us up to the food we consume in America today. From the invention of the microwave to the marketing of foods, find out why what we love and hate what goes in our mouths. But it's really more than that; the style of the prose is what captured my heart. Tisdale's romantic and descriptive writing deftly transported me back to my childhood days of fried bologna sandwiches and chicken chip bake so that I can understand why today I eat things like "sauteed cherries in pinot noir with creme fraiche" and "couscous tonnato with fried caper buds". What is the best thing YOU'VE ever tasted?
