During the last decade, curiosity about food and drink in America has rapidly accelerated and interest in the social, historical and economic aspects of food has dramatically expanded. The Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink will satiate this hunger for knowledge with fascinating entries on everything from the origin of Bloody Marys to vegetarianism. Placing American food and drink in context, this unique resource colorfully explains how the culinary world is influenced by American food, points out disappearing traditions and includes sidebars, definitions, bibliographies, and lists of popular festivals, museums, and websites for readers anxious to learn more about this mouth-watering subject. With over 950 articles and 300 illustrations, the Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink will stand alongside Davidson's Companion as the ideal complement for any food lover wishing to explore this related topic in even greater detail.
