Who Put the Devil in Deviled Eggs?
The Fascinating Stories Behind America's Favorite FoodsBook - 2011
"Here you'll learn who made the first cheesecake (the Greeks--at the Olympics), how pretzels came to be (an accident with a baker and lye), and, yes, who put the devil in deviled eggs (a twist of language). You will be astounded to learn where Chicken Fried Steak first came into being (think wiener schnitzel) or how bubble gum appeared in our lives (chewing gum that got too chewy). Your favorite foods have a secret past, revealed now between the covers of this unassuming little book. The result is a most appealing collection of food history and trivia--with more than 40 recipes."--P.  of cover.
