THE AMERICAN PLATE A Culinary History in 100 Bites

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tanya Eby

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Narrator Tanya Eby gives a performance to relish in this exploration of America’s food heritage from the 1400s to the present day. The 100-plus stories, or “bites,” about our different foods, people, and cultures are enticingly delivered in Eby’s rich voice. She presents the myriad facts about evolving food traditions with a fusion of journalistic directness and storytelling inflections. While the history of nationally recognized foods such as Spam and peanut butter and their significance in the historical context of American culture are intriguing in themselves, Eby also employs well-timed pauses to serve up several ironic twists, adding zest to this delightful listening experience.
