it was amazing

Read from June 08 to 09, 2013

I received this book for free from the goodreads firstreads giveaway. I was really impressed with this book, it isn't very long but it tells a lot of story. I didn't realize how much of what is considered everyday American food could be attributed to the French and how Jefferson is largely responsible for bringing it to us. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in food and history.
