The Best Thing I Ever Tasted: The Secret of Food by Sallie Tisdale

Sallie Tisdale takes subjects that in other hands might seem mundane or overdone and renders them unforgettable. --San Francisco ExaminerFew things in modern life have the power to shape our lives like food. It controls us as consumers, as social animals, as guilty creatures of appetite. And although we like to feel that our choices about eating are deliberate and rational, so many of our food decisions are dictated to us--by a culture thats more obsessed than ever with how we eat, by a food industry that tells us what we can and cant consume, and by our own unacknowledged food hang-ups.With disarming clarity and insight, Sallie Tisdale urges us to examine both our public and private attitudes about food--as they define family life, ethnic identification, and everyday rituals of eating. And her lively anecdotes and uncanny sense of the relationship between food and personality reveal a distinctive food ideology. Through a mixture of history, sociology, recipe, and memoir, her book deftly pieces together the many contradictory impulses that create the modern American appetite.
