Book Review: Eat the City By: Robin Schulman

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 

ISBN: 978-0-307-71905-8

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!
