CHoWline–Mad Feast

Food is a vehicle to study history, culture, economics, social justice, art, and science and more. It’s also a way to explore ourselves–obsessions, fears, joys. In The Mad Feast, Matthew Gavin Frank explores American foodways filtered through his own obsessions–ranging from giant squids to chemical cakes.

This review appeared in CHoWline, the monthly newsletter of the Culinary Historians of Washington, DC, a great group for exploring your own food obsessions!
