#1 New Release in History Humor, Food & Cooking, and Media Tie-In Cooking
David Page changed the world of food television by creating, developing, and executive-producing the groundbreaking show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Now from this two-time Emmy winner comes Food Americana, an entertaining mix of food culture, pop culture, nostalgia, and everything new on the American plate.
The remarkable history of American food. What is American cuisine, what national menu do we share, what dishes have we chosen, how did they become “American,” and how are they likely to evolve from here? David Page answers all these questions and more.
Engaging, insightful, and often humorous. The inside story of how Americans have formed a national cuisine from a world of flavors. Sushi, pizza, tacos, bagels, barbecue, dim sum―even fried chicken, burgers, ice cream, and many more―were born elsewhere and transformed into a unique American cuisine.
Food Americana is a riveting ride into everything we eat and why. From a lobster boat off the coast of Maine to the Memphis in May barbecue competition. From the century-old Russ & Daughters lox and bagels shop in lower Manhattan to the Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival. From a thousand-dollar Chinese meal in San Francisco to birria tacos from a food truck in South Philly.
Meet engaging characters and legends including:
- Alice Waters
- Daniel Boulud
- Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s
- Mel Brooks

The Magnificent Book of VegetablesRegular price $29.95 Sale price $23.96 Save $5.99
The hunger for thoughtful, wholesome and truly delicious vegetarian recipes is only increasing, especially now that we all know that eating more veg is good for our health -- and the planet. In The Magnificent Book of Vegetables, trained chef and food writer Alice Hart shares over 80 tantalising recipes that not only taste great, but will leave you feeling amazing.
As a trained nutritionist, Alice knows the importance of vegetable-centric, wholefood eating, but at the same time understands that most of us lead busy lives and shop at our local supermarkets. As such, many of the recipes in this book are uncomplicated yet big on flavour, and really make the vegetable the hero of every dish. Alice shares advice on the best way to plan your shop throughout the seasons so that nothing goes to waste, even suggesting tinned, pickled or frozen swaps where possible. Start the day right with a Green quinoa breakfast bowl, whip up a batch of Kale and potato hand pies with caraway seeds for the park, and warm up a dreary winter's evening with Chard and black bean chilli with Jalepeno-cornbread crust.
Featuring do-ahead elements to make your meal preparation easier, tips on when certain vegetables are in season, and fad-free advice, The Magnificent Book of Vegetables will prove that, with the right recipe, even a humble cabbage or beetroot can be exciting and delicious.
