Contents The muddle of the modern mean -- Food at work -- Having it our way -- Selling absence -- Secular church -- Diet evangelism -- The democratization of wine -- The age of stunt foods -- Cheesepocalypse -- The story of spaghetti -- What to make of all this.
Summary A look at the deeper meaning behind our food choices: from the prioritization of convenience over health to the ways food at work affects our happiness; from the American obsession with "having it our way" at Starbucks, Chipotle and other chains that individualize the eating experience to the fascinating dynamic between highbrow food culture--artisan this and small-batch that--and the lowbrow, such as Taco Bell's sale of 100 million Doritos Locos Tacos in just ten weeks.
