"Warren Belasco is a witty, wonderfully observant guide to the hopes and fears that every era projects onto its culinary future. This enlightening study reads like time-travel for foodies."--Laura Shapiro, author of "Something From the Oven: Reinventing Dinner in 1950s America" "In his insightful look at human imaginings about their food and its future sufficiency, Warren Belasco makes use of everything from academic papers, films, and fiction to journalism, advertising and world's fairs to trace a pattern of public concern over two centuries. His wide-ranging scholarship humbles all would-be futurists by reminding us that ours is not the first generation, nor is it likely to be the last, to argue inconclusively about whether we can best feed the world with more spoons, better manners or a larger pie. Truly painless education; a wonderful read!"--Joan Dye Gussow, author "This Organic Life" "Warren Belasco serves up an intellectual feast, brilliantly dissecting two centuries of expectations regarding the future of food and hunger. "Meals to Come" provides an essential guide to thinking clearly about the worrisome question as to whether the world can ever be adequately and equitably fed."--Joseph J. Corn, co-author of "Yesterday's Tomorrows: Past Visions of the American Future" "This astute, sly, warmly human critique of the basic belly issues that have absorbed and defined Americans politically, socially, and economically for the past 200 years is a knockout. Warren Belasco's important book, crammed with knowledge, is absolutely necessary for an understanding of where we are now."--Betty Fussell, author of My "Kitchen Wars"

Ein Plädoyer gegen synthetische Nahrung und das Geschäft mit Ergänzungsstoffen. „Je mehr wir uns über Ernährung Sorgen machen, desto weniger gesund werden wir“, schreibt Michael Pollan. Er reduziert seine Ernährungstipps auf den Satz: „Esst Nahrung, nicht zu viel und überwiegend Pflanzen“ und plädiert im Übrigen dafür, das Essen dem gesunden Menschenverstand zu überlassen. Ein vergnüglicher Antiratgeber, der auf erfrischende Weise gegen den Strich gebürstet ist. Er macht Schluss mit dem Diätenwahn und gibt uns endlich die Lust am Essen zurück.

The Routledge History of American Foodways provides an important overview of the main themes surrounding the history of food in the Americas from the pre-colonial era to the present day. By broadly incorporating the latest food studies research, the book explores the major advances that have taken place in the past few decades in this crucial field. The volume is composed of four parts. The first part explores the significant developments in US food history in one of five time periods to situate the topical and thematic chapters to follow. The second part examines the key ingredients in the American diet throughout time, allowing authors to analyze many of these foods as items that originated in or dramatically impacted the Americas as a whole, and not just the United States. The third part focuses on how these ingredients have been transformed into foods identified with the American diet, and on how Americans have produced and presented these foods over the last four centuries. The final section explores how food practices are a means of embodying ideas about identity, showing how food choices, preferences, and stereotypes have been used to create and maintain ideas of difference. Including essays on all the key topics and issues, The Routledge History of American Foodways comprises work from a leading group of scholars and presents a comprehensive survey of the current state of the field. It will be essential reading for all those interested in the history of food in American culture.

Modern living began with the homes of the 1950s. Casting aside the privations of the Second World War, American architects embraced the must-have mod-cons: they wrapped fitted kitchens around fridges, washing machines, dishwashers and electric ovens, gave televisions pride of place in the living room, and built integrated garages for enormous space-age cars. So why was this change so radical? In what ways did life change for people moving into these swanky new homes, and why has the legacy of the 1950s home endured for so long? Diane Boucher answers these questions and more in this colorful introduction to the homes that embody the golden age of modern design.

Toasted marshmallows stuffed with raisins? Green-and-white luncheons? Chemistry in the kitchen? This entertaining and erudite social history, now in its fourth paperback edition, tells the remarkable story of America's transformation from a nation of honest appetites into an obedient market for instant mashed potatoes. In Perfection Salad, Laura Shapiro investigates a band of passionate but ladylike reformers at the turn of the twentieth century--including Fannie Farmer of the Boston Cooking School--who were determined to modernize the American diet through a "scientific" approach to cooking. Shapiro's fascinating tale shows why we think the way we do about food today.

Ask children where food comes from, and they’ll probably answer: “the supermarket.” Ask most adults, and their replies may not be much different. Where our foods are raised and what happens to them between farm and supermarket shelf have become mysteries. How did we become so disconnected from the sources of our breads, beef, cheeses, cereal, apples, and countless other foods that nourish us every day? Ann Vileisis’s answer is a sensory-rich journey through the history of making dinner. Kitchen Literacy takes us from an eighteenth-century garden to today’s sleek supermarket aisles, and eventually to farmer’s markets that are now enjoying a resurgence. Vileisis chronicles profound changes in how American cooks have considered their foods over two centuries and delivers a powerful statement: what we don’t know could hurt us. As the distance between farm and table grew, we went from knowing particular places and specific stories behind our foods’ origins to instead relying on advertisers’ claims. The woman who raised, plucked, and cooked her own chicken knew its entire life history while today most of us have no idea whether hormones were fed to our poultry. Industrialized eating is undeniably convenient, but it has also created health and environmental problems, including food-borne pathogens, toxic pesticides, and pollution from factory farms. Though the hidden costs of modern meals can be high, Vileisis shows that greater understanding can lead consumers to healthier and more sustainable choices. Revealing how knowledge of our food has been lost and how it might now be regained, Kitchen Literacy promises to make us think differently about what we eat.

London in den späten 40er-Jahren: Hier gilt eine ledige Frau über dreißig schon als alte Jungfer. Mildred Lathbury, eine solche etwas farblose Dame ohne feste Bindungen, ist als Pfarrerstochter aufgewachsen, arbeitet für eine Hilfsorganisation und engagiert sich in der Kirchengemeinde. Alles verläuft in ruhigen Bahnen, bis neue Nachbarn einziehen: eine attraktive Anthropologin und ein charmanter Marineoffizier. Dieses Paar stellt Mildreds Leben auf den Kopf. Nicht nur ist man dem Alkohol zugeneigt, es werden Dinge beim Namen genannt, die eine Lady lieber verschweigt; vor allem aber wird Mildred wiederholt in Ehezwiste hineingezogen. Als sich schließlich der Pfarrer in ein neues Gemeindemitglied verliebt und Mildred um Hilfe bittet, wird es ihr zu viel. Mit einem Mal entdeckt die stets nützliche Mildred ihre eigenen Bedürfnisse und hat am Ende tatsächlich die Wahl zwischen zwei Männern. Legt sie als treusorgende Gattin des Wissenschaftlers fortan Sachverzeichnisse an, entscheidet sie sich für den Pfarrer oder verzichtet sie gar auf beide? Mit subtilem Witz und scharfer Beobachtungsgabe erzählt Barbara Pym die Geschichte einer alleinstehenden Dame im England der 40er-Jahre und erweist sich dabei als glänzende Stilistin.
