In the newly updated, revised, and retitled The Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink, author John F. Mariani greatly expands upon his 1983 classic.

It was named Best Reference Book of the Year by Library Journal.A food-lover's resource containing more than 2,000 terms and descriptions that help to detail American gastronomy's 300-plus-year history, more than 500 recipes, and a wealth of culinary lore and anecdotes. This single-volume reference is, according to The New York Times, "Filled with information to intrigue and inform the scholar, the trivia buff, and the cook."
