9780062219541 The multiple-James Beard Awardâ€”winning restaurant critic forÂ Los Angeles MagazineÂ delivers an arresting exploration of our cultural demand for â€œartisanalâ€ foods in a world dominated by corporate agribusiness. Â We hear the word â€œartisanalâ€ all the timeâ€”attached to cheese, chocolate, coffee, even fast-food chain sandwichesâ€”but what does it actually mean? We take â€œfarm to tableâ€ and â€œhandcrafted foodâ€ for granted now but how did we get here? InÂ Finding the Flavors We Lost, acclaimed food writer Patric Kuh profiles major figures in the so-called â€œartisanalâ€ food movement who brought exceptional taste back to food and inspired chefs and restaurateurs to redefine and rethink the way we eat. Â Kuh begins by narrating the entertaining stories of countercultural â€œradicalsâ€ who taught themselves the forgotten crafts of bread, cheese, and beer-making in reaction to the ever-present marketing of bland, mass-produced food, and how these people became the inspiration for todayâ€™s crop of young chefs and artisans.Â Kuh examines how a rediscovery of the value of craft and individual effort has fueled todayâ€™s popularity and appreciation for artisanal food and the transformations this has effected on both the restaurant menu and the dinner table. Throughout the book, he raises a host of critical questions. How big of an operation is too big for a food company to still call themselves â€œartisanalâ€? Does the high cost of handcrafted goods unintentionally make them unaffordable for many Americans? Does technological progress have to quash flavor? Â Eye-opening, informative, and entertaining,Â Finding the Flavors We LostÂ is a fresh look into the culture of artisan food as we know it todayâ€”and what its future may be.
