THE TASTEMAKERS Why We're Crazy for Cupcakes but Fed Up with Fondue (Plus Baconomics, Superfoods, and Other Secrets from the World of Food Trends)

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Sax

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Author David Sax provides an engaging narration of his investigation into food trends and those who create them. Sax deftly conveys the diverse facets of his book—for example, he uses an animated excitement as he reflects on food trends such as cupcakes and bacon and a serious tone as he puts forth the question of whether tastemakers who encourage a food trend know enough about what they’re promoting. Sax’s clear delivery flows smoothly, and his Canadian accent slips out endearingly in his pronunciation of certain words, including “aboot” for “about.” He also offers pretty accurate renditions of Indian and Mexican accents as well as a humorous Woody Allen impersonation—complete with his trademark stammering—to keep the listening experience enticing and enlightening.
