Any other 'foodie' type books to recommend?
If you're interested in the sociocultural implications of dining and food culture, I think you'd probably like a lot of the books from Berg Publishers. They publish many cultural studies and anthropological texts, including some specifically centered on food and drink: http://www.bergpublishers.com/Categories/fod/tabid/605/Default.aspx I also recommend many of the books on food and culture published by Harvard's Belknap Press.
Thanks for the publisher suggestions, Marie!

One of the more interesting points is when he talks about the contradiction in selling cheese to liberal, foodie San Franciscans who ask questions like "is it organic?" and "is it a family farm?" when the answers are yes but the conservative Christian politics of a lot of those family farmers would not be welcome at the San Franciscans' tables.
