520 A provocative look at how and what Americans eat and why--
a flavorful blend of The Omnivore's Dilemma, Salt Sugar
Fat, and Freakonomics that reveals how the way we live
shapes the way we eat.Food writer and Culinary Institute
of America director Sophie Egan takes readers on an eye-
opening journey through the American food psyche,
examining the connections between the values that define
our national character--work, freedom, and progress--and
our eating habits, the good and the bad. Egan explores why
these values make for such an unstable, and often
unhealthy, food culture and, paradoxically, why they also
make America's cuisine so great.Egan raises a host of
intriguing questions: Why does McDonald's have 107 items
on its menu? Why are breakfast sandwiches, protein bars,
and gluten-free anything so popular? Will bland, soulless
meal replacements like Soylent revolutionize our
definition of a meal? The search for answers takes her
across the culinary landscape, from the prioritization of
convenience over health to the unintended consequences of
"perks" like free meals for employees; from the American
obsession with "having it our way" to the surge of
Starbucks, Chipotle, and other chains individualizing the
eating experience; from high culture--artisan and organic
and what exactly "natural" means--to low culture--the sale
of 100 million Taco Bell Doritos Locos Tacos in ten weeks.
She also looks at how America's cuisine--like the nation
itself--has been shaped by diverse influences from across
the globe.Devoured weaves together insights from the
fields of psychology, anthropology, food science, and
behavioral economics as well as myriad examples from daily
life to create a powerful and unique look at food in
