Summary
A look at the deeper meaning behind our food choices: from the prioritization of convenience over health to the ways food at work affects our happiness; from the American obsession with "having it our way" at Starbucks, Chipotle and other chains that individualize the eating experience to the fascinating dynamic between highbrow food culture--artisan this and small-batch that--and the lowbrow, such as Taco Bell's sale of 100 million Doritos Locos Tacos in just ten weeks
Summary
Food writer and Culinary Institute of America director examines what's good and what's bad about American food culture, discussing why there are 107 items on McDonalds' menu, meal-replacements like Soylent and the increase of chains like Starbucks and Chipotles
