Tasting Food, Tasting Freedom: Excursions Into Eating, Culture, and the Past
Beacon Press, 1996 - 149 pages
A renowned anthropologist explores the history and meaning of eating in America.
Addressing issues ranging from the global phenomenon of Coca-Cola to the diets of American slaves, Sidney Mintz shows how our choices about food are shaped by a vast and increasingly complex global economy. He demonstrates that our food choices have enormous and often surprising significance.
"A buffet of information."
— Gael McCarthy, The New York Times
"A collection of thoughtful. . . . essays. [Mintz's] writing is intellectually lively and stylistically colorful."
—Colman Andrews, Saveur
