Summary
Food writer Sophie Egan takes readers on an eye-opening journey through the food psyche, examining the connections between the values that define our national character - work, freedom, and progress - and our eating habits. Egan explores why these values make for such an unstable, and often unhealthy, food culture and, paradoxically, why they also make our cuisine so great. "Devoured" weaves together insights from the fields of psychology, anthropology, food science, and behaviour economics as well as myriad examples from daily life to create a powerful and unique look at food in North America.
