Praise for The Man Who Changed the Way We Eat: Craig Claiborne and the American Food Renaissance…
"McNamee deftly explores the glittering public life and far-reaching contributions Claiborne made to America's food culture, as well as his troubled personal life. A highly readable, well-researched narrative chronicling America's boring culinary past and the one man who altered its course forever." ---Kirkus
