Eat the City: a tale of the fishers, foragers, butchers, farmers, poultry minders, sugar refiners, cane cutters, bee keepers, wine makers, and brewers who built New York
The title of Ms Schulman's book, while giving an excellent teaser, only serves as a aperitif to the guided journey she takes you on. This book contains chapter after chapter-each its own love story to a trade of the food industry.
Former monopolies of the sugar and beer industries, shady tricks becoming a legitimate business and vice-versa, the reader travels to the nooks and crannies of New York with a beautiful view of true passion and a craving for the subject matter.
I highly recommend this book as one of my favorites. I put the book down wanting for more and had Ms. Schulman written about the circus-I would have tried to join!
