A delightful rumination on what language reveals about food and culture, Dan Jurnofsky’s “The Language of Food”  showcases both his impressive knowlege of linguisitics* and his gift for lively narrative.

In the book Jurnofsky blends personal anecdotes with his etymological and gastrological insights in order to provide the reader useful insights on the intersection and evolution of language and cuisine.
