really liked it
bookshelves: school, food-studies, food-studies-field
Read in November, 2011

This is an amazing book on the foodways of three different ethnic groups (Italian, Irish, and Jewish emigrants) and how they sustain and evolve their food traditions after emigrating to the United States in the 19th Century. I had actually read the Italian chapters in undergrad, but loved reading the entire book from a current grad class: Culture & Cuisine: New England. Definitely recommend.
