Much more than simple sustenance, food is part of our culture & our traditions. Everything about eating -- including what we eat, how it tastes, who prepares it, & who’s at the table -- is a form of communication rich with meaning. This beautifully illustrated, thought-provoking book explores the role of food in our lives. Paralleling a PBS TV series hosted by New York chef Marcus Samuelsson, the book goes to 20 ethnic communities across the U.S. & examines, through stories, pictures, & interviews, the many ways that food is an expression of our humanity. It shows how our attitudes, practices, & rituals around food reflect our  basic beliefs about our world & ourselves. Also includes the recipes from the TV series & 200 color photos.
