Americans seem to have an insatiable appetite for food. Not only eating it, but consuming all things related to it: celebrity chef TV shows, cookbooks, memoirs and photo blogs. Berkeley poet and feminist literary critic Sandra Gilbert takes a wide-ranging look at America's relationship with food in her book, "The Culinary Imagination: From Myth to Modernity." Gilbert joins us to discuss the cultural history of food in the U.S.

Guests:

Sandra Gilbert, author of "The Culinary Imagination: From Myth to Modernity" and distinguished professor emerita in the Department of English, UC Davis
