Every time the author mentioned some of her friends, I grew more envious that I am not one of them. I think she has to be one of the most interesting writers I've run across. In addition to writing, she gives food-related courses (lectures) regarding herbs and spices, which probably fill up withi...

Enjoyed this unique take on history, food and the immigrant story. Not sure the author's thesis that these flavors were any more important than others really holds up, but the stories of each of the flavors were strong enough independently for me not to care that much.

An eye opening look (we have Martha Washington's cookbook ! It has a recipe for pepper molasses cookies! Ketchup was a replacement for hard to get soy sauce!) at how different flavors have been incorporated into American cooking. Fun, but seemed short for covering food history, immigration, trave...

http://www.themaineedge.com/style/eig... In a lot of circumstances, eight isn’t a particularly high number. But according to a new book, the foundation of American cuisine through the centuries can be explored via just eight flavors. That’s the premise of the aptly-named “Eight Flavors” (Simon &...
