Quotes About American Food Culture

It wasnt until I came to New York and started to see the African American community, but also the Ethiopian community here, and started to eat the food, started to understand the music. I said, you know, I got to go and understand the culture. So me and my sister went.
— Marcus Samuelsson —

The great anxious focus on the minutiae of appetite-on calories and portion size and what's going into the body versus what's being expended, on shoes and hair and abs of steel-keeps the larger, more fearsome questions of desire blurred and out of focus. American women spend approximately $1 million every hour on cosmetics. This may or may not say something about female vanity, but it certainly says something about female energy, where it is and is not focused. Easier to worry about the body than the soul, easier to fit the self into the narrow slots of identity our culture offers to women than to create one ... that allows for the expression of all passions, the satisfaction of all appetites. The great preoccupation with things like food and shopping and appearance, in turn, is less of a genuine focus on hunger-indulging it, understanding it, making decisions about it-than it is a monumental distraction from hunger.

— Caroline Knapp
