Default Oxford Encyclopedia on Food and Drink in America

I'm delighted to report that the Oxford Encyclopedia on Food and Drink in
America will be published in a few weeks. It was a Cecil B. Demille's
production--years in the making with a cast of thousands -- well, 206

entries place American food in historical and cultural perspective.

To celebrate its release, several events have been scheduled around the US. The
New York event will be held on October 19th at the Institute for Culinary
Education. Other events are scheduled for the National Museum of American
History in Washington, DC (October 16), The Los Angeles Public Library (October
9), Kendall College, Chicago (October 22-23) and Boston (in planning). If
anyone would like an invitation to any of these events, please drop me an
