Summary
  • "How and why do we think about food, taste it, and cook it? While much has been written about the concept of terroir as it relates to wine, in this book, Amy Trubek expands the concept of terroir beyond wine and into cuisine and culture more broadly. She explains how the complex concepts of terroir and taste of place are instrumental to France's food and wine culture and then explores the multifaceted connections between taste and place in both cuisine and agriculture in the United States. How can we reclaim the taste of place, and what can it mean for us in a country where, on average, any food has traveled at least fifteen hundred miles from farm to table?
  • Written for anyone interested in food, this book shows how the taste of place matters now, and how it can mediate between our local desires and our global reality to define and challenge American food practices."--Jacket
