Are you hungry yet? Readers will be after reading these witty and informative histories of the hamburger and pizza. With illustrations throughout, two icons of American food never looked so tempting and tasty.
From the Publisher:
Documents the history and cultural impact of the hamburger, from its beginning as a nineteenth-century American street food sold by vendors, to the successful chain operations started by White Castle in 1921, to its impact on food culture around the world.
This entry in the "Edible" series explores the origin and history of the hamburger. The author divulges that burgers were first sold in the United States in the 19th century by street vendors. Hamburgers were quickly a favorite American food, but their popularity soared in the early 1920s with the arrival of White Castle--the first fast food outlet in the United States. In addition to celebrating the burger's place in American culture, Smith also explores the economic, nutritional, and world-wide influence of what many consider to be an essential element of a "happy meal."
