Coming Soon: Eatymology: The Dictionary of Modern Gastronomy

EatymologyIt's been a very long time since I've updated this site. But, I do have some news to share. After going down the rabbit hole that was Ruth Bourdain and a stint in gastronomic rehab (Todd English was my sponsor), I have emerged relatively unscathed. I'm excited to tell you that I have a new book coming out this fall: Eatymology: The Dictionary of Modern Gastronomy.

The book is a compendium of 100 new food words (mostly coined since 2000) which have emerged from professional kitchens, food science laboratories, pop culture, the web, academia, and more. Entries include definitions, illustrations, historical details, food facts, and statistics on everything from bistronomy to wine raves, gastrosexuals, and urge surfing.

For more information about the book, check out this recent Bon Appetit article.

Eatymology is available now for preorder on Amazon and will be released on November 3, 2015.
