Through a lively mixture of history, memoir, sociology, and family recipe, The Best Thing I Ever Tasted explores our public and private attitudes about food, and seeks to put us back in touch with the elemental needs behind our modern appetite. Whether she's reminiscing about her mother's stunningly bland cooking, walking us through the Betty Crocker test kitchens, describing the best recipes she's ever tasted, or speaking candidly about her deeply conflicted feelings about dieting, Tisdale draws a rich portrait of the many forces that every day shape our endlessly inventive hunger.
