    Fifty years ago we would cut out a recipe from a newspaper or magazine but most food instructions were hand written and shared on recipe cards by home cooks who maybe owned one or two cookbooks tops Julia Child was alone on the TV set Now we have traditional TV channels with food focused programming trying to compete with and capture the 24 7 cable food show audiences Gourmet food trucks and innovative, leading edge chefs serve fresh local fare in exotic and authentic dishes in a variety of creative styles and venues What s this all about In this new book, author Dwight Furrowan, inspiring Professor of Philosophy and Certified Specialist of Wine, makes his case we are part of the 21st Century food culture revolution He discusses his rational from various angles and guides us into understanding and appreciating what and why we are in revolt In American Foodie, Taste, Art and the Cultural Revolution you ll discover all the nuances of the foodie movement Granted it reads a bit like a thesis but if you stick with it you will find it contains a wealth of observation, reflection, and thoughtful explanation of this food revolution in America It s a great resource for all foodies, wanna be s and those interested in cultural trends and how change evolves.

    I think we all can agree that food is essential No argument there But what happens when food becomes driven by self proclaimed Foodies Some might say that food now goes beyond its functional definition to redefine itself in to something glamorous and certainly hobby like This becomes an interesting theory when you add in the role social media and digital photography plays, increasingly promoting and elevating the foodie culture We look at our daily meals well beyond their humble nutritional values, and in following celebrity chefs, bloggers, and food reviewers, a whole new set of values and influence come our way reallyon an hourly basis.This is a dedicated read as you have to pay attention step by step to what is being said It often reads like a culinary text book I personally think the author would have been effective presenting his case if he included photos to illustrate many of his points, but all in all it is a thoughtful read that a real foodie, food historians and culinary aficionados should enjoy.
