JOHN MCQUAID - AUTHOR OF THE BOOK TASTY: THE ART AND SCIENCE OF WHAT WE EAT

Taste is often dismissed as the most primitive of the senses because its principal mission is simple: to discern food from everything else. Yet it’s really the most complex and subtle. Tasty: The Art and Science of What We Eat is a brief biography of flavor, tracing an arc from its first appearance at the dawn of life on earth, to the invention of cooking by early humans, to the strange concoctions of the modern food system. Reporting from kitchens, supermarkets, farms, restaurants, huge food corporations, and science labs, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John McQuaid shows how flavor is woven into our genes, our cravings, our personalities and behavior. Tasty offers a smorgasbord of insights into our modern food obsessions, and ponders where they’re taking us.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: John McQuaid has written about topics such as city-destroying super-termites, the slow collapse of fishing communities, hurricane levee engineering, mountaintop removal coal mining, and the global flower business for publications including Smithsonian magazine, The Washington Post, Wired, Forbes.com, EatingWell magazine and the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He is the co-author of Path of Destruction: The Devastation of New Orleans and the Coming Age of Superstorms. His work has won a Pulitzer Prize, as well as awards from the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the International Association of Culinary Professionals. He lives in Silver Spring, Maryland, with his wife, son and daughter. The struggle to satisfy and understand the kids' strange and contradictory food choices (the elder liked super-hot peppers and limes, the younger rice, pasta and cheese) was the inspiration for Tasty.
