The American Plate: A Culinary History in 100 Bites
The American Plate: A Culinary History in 100 Bites
by Libby O'connell
Staff Pick
I love when a title accurately pinpoints what a book is about. The American Plate: A Culinary History in 100 Bites is one such title. Written by the lead historian at the History Channel, author Libby H. O'Connell has given us a very readable excursion through time focusing on the American foodway, with some foods rather time-stamped (hardly anyone eats turtle anymore, but we still love the early pioneer food of pumpkin pudding mixed with cream).

Appropriately, the foodway starts with Native American foods and then wends it way through oysters, chop suey, SPAM, and more, to the epilogue touching on foods of this very minute: fad diets, GMOs, and, kind of oddly, chili con carne.

The American Plate is a quick read, and one that could give you some conversational ammunition at any awkward family holiday gathering that may come your way.
