Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine, Sarah Lohman (Simon & Schuster)

The debut book by food writer Lohman explores the history of American food through the eight ingredients she sees as central to the country’s culinary identity: black pepper, chili powder, curry powder, garlic, MSG, soy sauce, Sriracha, and vanilla. It’s part history, part cookbook, and part exploration of what American food says about our culture.
