The Table Comes First

March 16th, 2012

Adam Gopnik long one of my favorite writers, allows us to see ourselves through this act we do everyday — eating. His latest book, The Table Comes First, places our daily dining and what happens around the table in the context of French history — reminding us a calorie is never just a calorie.

Tasteful Nature: French Cuisine and the Evolution of Modern Cooking, commissioned and first published by the American Philosophical Society
