In the new American cuisine, no culinary taboo is too fixed to overturn, no animal or vegetable too lowly to exalt in the temples of gastronomy. At once an uproarious behind-the-scenes adventure and a serious attempt to understand the implications of the way we eat, Anything That Moves
is a highly entertaining and revelatory look inside the complex world of the obsessive diners and provocative chefs who are transforming the national palate. From Los Angeles Times
food critic Jonathan Gold to a high-end Las Vegas purveyor of rate and exotic ingredients and the traffickers of raw milk and other forbidden products, this rollicking story revolves around a cast of fascinating and unexpected characters who flirt with danger and disgust in pursuit of the sublime.
Dana Goodyear looks at what we eat and tells us who we are, placing this moment of transition within a vivid historical framework, and showing us how food that seems extreme today may well change the American diet forever.
