Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Literary Nonfiction. Art. Memoir. California History. The first battles of the American food revolution were fought in Berkeley, California, in the 1970s. In the trenches was art student L. John Harris who worked at several of the revolution's founding institutions, including the Cheese Board and Chez Panisse. Now Harris celebrates and skewers American foodie culture with over 90 gastronomically-incorrect cartoons and curatorial/memoirist commentaries from his musée imaginaire, the Museum of Culinary History. Foreword by Chef Jeremiah Tower.

About the Author

L. John Harris is a native of Los Angeles and attended art school at the University of California at Berkeley in the late 1960s. A founding member of the the Cheese Board Collective and The Swallow cafe collectives in the 1970s, Harris wrote The Book of Garlic (1974) and operated Aris Books in the 1980s, a cookbook publisher. Today Harris produces documentary films and draws his Foodoodle cartoons between homes in Paris, France, and Berkeley, California.
