When you think of the word cuisine, what comes to mind? Burgers? Barbecue? While it’s likely neither of those are amongst your answers, they are distinctly American. One of the things food expert and Sommelier Dwight Furrow examines in American Foodie: Taste, Art and the Cultural Revolution is the history of food in America and what elements have kept us from being mentioned among the world’s finest cuisine. He also tackles the philosophy of the ever increasing foodie craze, as well as 10 reasons to eat mindfully (that have nothing to do with losing weight.) Dwight is a professor of Philosophy at San Diego Mesa College. He writes on the philosophy of food and wine, ethics, political philosophy, and aesthetics.
