Richman uses his signature wit and casual charm to take you on a tour around the country,explaining such curiosities as why bagels are shaped like circles, why fried chicken is sopopular in the South, and how some of the most iconic American food. Hot dogs, fries, and soda are not really American at all. Writing with passion, curiosity, and a desire to share his knowledge, he includes recipes, secret addresses for fun and tasty finds, and tips on how to eat like a local from coast to coast.
