White Bread

March 16, 2012 § Leave a comment

I wrote a book about ultrasoft, mass-produced sliced white bread because I wanted to understand America’s fraught relationship to industrial eating in all its contradictory ferment. Over the past 100 years, few foods have been as revered and reviled as industrial white bread. -Aaron Bobrow-Strain

I’m eager to get my hands on this author’s new book, White Bread: A Social History of the Store-Bought Loaf. It sounds fascinating! And maybe a little depressing. Golly, the food-writing craze is just getting bigger and bigger, isn’t it? Here’s a link to Bobrow-Strain’s article “What Would Great-Grandma Eat?” which was adapted from his book.
