The mad feast : an ecstatic tour through America's food

February 3, 2016
Frank, Matthew Gavin, author.
xiii, 418 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
South -- New England -- Mid-Atlantic -- Midwest -- Pacific West -- Great Plains -- Mountain West -- Southwest -- Mid-South.
Essayist Matthew Gavin Frank examines a quintessential dish in each state, interweaving the culinary with personal and cultural associations of each region. From key lime pie (Florida) to elk stew (Montana), The Mad Feast commemorates the unexpected origins of the familiar. Dissecting the myriad intersections between history and food, Frank considers politics, sexuality, violence, grief, and pleasure: the cool, creamy whoopie pie evokes toughness in the face of New England winters, while the stewlike perloo serves up an exploration of food and race in the South. Tracing an unpredictable map of our collective appetites, The Mad Feast presents a flavor profile of the American spirit.

The result allows you to live a longer and healthier life with greater amounts of energy. Dana Carpender, bestselling author of 500 Paleo Recipes and 1001 Low-Carb Recipes will guide you through important questions like: Why Low Carb/High Fat? Why May I Need to Eat Less Protein? What Are Good Fats? In 200 Low-Carb, High-Fat Recipes you get tips for creating low-carb/high-fat meals, and find out why three meals a day may not be needed!
