Tasty : The Art and Science of What We Eat

Author(s): John McQuaid

Social Sciences

A Pulitzer Prize-winning JournalistTaste was long considered the most basic of the five senses because its principal mission is a simple one: to discern food from everything else. But taste is really the most complex and subtle -- a mysterious interplay of body and brain. Brilliantly synthesizing genetics, microbiology, ancient myth, philosophy, and literature, Tasty offers a delicious smorgasbord of where taste originated and where it's going -- and why it changes by the day.
