Food and the City

Food and the City
Ina Yalof
The author, originally not a foodie, was introduced to cooking and good food by her husband and later in-laws. One day, while out walking, she stumbled across a person in the food industry who had a story. She began to wonder who else might have a story that involved feeding the masses, but no one knew about it. She set off to find the stories of food in New York and the rest is, as they say, history. Now the reader can enjoy her extensive search and interesting stories.

This book was fascinating. The author has an engaging writing style that pulled me in and made me a part of her story. The people she described came alive and I could totally picture them in their natural food setting. Each story is as unique as the individual, but they all come together with a common goal - sharing their love of food. This is my first book by this author, but based on the research put into the book and the creative, capturing style of writing, I'll be on the look out for her next book. I would definitely recommend this book if you enjoy reading history, are a foodie, enjoy great non-fiction, or live in New York.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
