Well, I haven’t got a physical copy yet, but the editors of Human Cuisine have sent along electronic copies of the book. This means I got to re-read what I wrote at least three (?) years ago and see whether I was embarrassed by it. It’s not too bad, so I can live with it. The bio, of course, has me at UHD, but I can live with that, too (particularly since I’m no longer there!).
Co-editor Ken Albala took the book and a giant poster to the big conference for the Association for the Study of Food and Society in New Orleans last week and “there was phenomenal interest” in it. He also said the book has sold something like 23K copies on Amazon (pity I don’t get any royalties).
