Adam Richman ´ America the Edible TEXT

America the EdibleThe host of Travel Channel's most popular show explains how iconic American foods have captured our culinary imaginations you won't look at a bagel the same way againIn America the Edible Travel Channel host Adam Richman tackles the ins and outs of American cuisine demonstrating his own uniue brand of culinary anthropology Believing that regional cuisine reveals far than just our taste for chick After reading the 10 star The Cooking Gene A Journey Through African American Culinary History in the Old South by Michael W Twitty I was hoping for something serious American history and anthropology tied to food culture I wasn't expecting what seemed like one chatty blog post after the next I thought maybe although it is very light on knowledge nothing I couldn't get by a simple uery on Google maybe it would be good in its own way But really it's all about the author a frustrated actor an ex sushi chef whose mother makes a kosher chicken soup nothing like my own mother's except for the matza balls not light and fluffy in my family but heavy and they sink and were known as German bombs The sexism is rampant and appalling After a party he goes out for something to eat a New York any time of the day diner breakfast accompanied by a woman he describes as a hottie in a short silk dress and killer heels He goes off her in the diner because she is British and pronounces 'Obama' in a way he doesn't like He doesn't like her politics either and if it wasn't for the food he was waiting for he would have left As it is he hints that she was good enough for one night of sexThat was just one example of his opinion of women So since there is nothing either entertaining or enlightening in the five chapters half way I've read so far and I don't like either the author or his attitudes I'm knocking this one on the head
