FOOD AMERICANA The Remarkable People and Incredible Stories Behind America's Favorite Dishes

by | Read by Jonathan Yen

Contemporary Culture • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Jonathan Yen is an engaged and engaging narrator of this tour of American foods. His delivery has energy, enthusiasm, and just the right tone for tracking the many restaurateurs and locals who enhance the histories in this audiobook. Speaking in a conversational style and informative tone, Yen serves the text well. Author David Page, producer of "Dinners, Drive-Ins and Dives," has a real feeling for comfort food and understands how folk culture works. A fine interviewer, he is especially good at finding the people who still own historic eateries. His audiobook charts the origin stories of pizza, bagels, caviar, oysters, lobster rolls, and, of course, burgers. It includes lots of profiles, and each section ends with a recipe.
