Millions of immigrants have been attracted to American beaches, now not through the mythic streets paved with gold, yet quite by means of its tables heaped with nutrition. How they skilled the realities of America's ample food--its meat and white bread, its butter and cheese, fruit and veggies, espresso and beer--reflected their previous deprivations and formed their ethnic practices within the new land.

Hungering for America tells the tales of 3 exact teams and their exact culinary dramas. Italian immigrants remodeled the nutrients in their top periods and of sacred days right into a established "Italian" meals that encouraged group delight and unity. Irish immigrants, against this, loath to imitate the foodways of the Protestant British elite, decreased nutrition as a marker of ethnicity. And, East ecu Jews, who honored foodstuff because the very important focus on which relations and non secular perform amassed, chanced on that nutritional regulations jarred with America's boundless choices.

Hasia Diner confirms the well-worn adage, "Tell me what you consume and that i will inform you what you are."
