Pizza — Helstosky   Leave a comment

Pizza: A Global History (Carol Helstosky) – Another delightful volume in the Edible series by Reaktion books (together with already published Hamburger, Spices, and Pancake, as well as others forthcoming), small volumes which combine an elegant format and attention to detail with academic excellence in the monograph. Helstosky (author of Garlic and Oil: Food and Politics in Italy) chronicles the rise of the pizza in three leaps: onto the plate in Naples, across the Atlantic to the United States, and from there to a position of global culinary dominance. The book is as entertaining as it is solid.
