White Bread: A Social History of the Store-Bought Loaf
How did white bread, once an icon of American
progress, become “white trash”? In this lively history of bakers, dietary
crusaders, and social reformers, Aaron Bobrow-Strain shows us that what we think
about the humble, puffy loaf says a lot about who we are and what we want our
society to look like.
White Bread teaches us that when Americans debate
what one should eat, they are also wrestling with larger questions of race,
class, immigration, and gender. As Bobrow-Strain traces the story of bread, from
the first factory loaf to the latest gourmet pain au levain, he shows how
efforts to champion “good food” reflect dreams of a better society—even as they
reinforce stark social hierarchies.
In the early twentieth century, the
factory-baked loaf heralded a bright new future, a world away from the hot,
dusty, “dirty” bakeries run by immigrants. Fortified with vitamins, this bread
was considered the original “superfood” and even marketed as patriotic—while
food reformers painted white bread as a symbol of all that was wrong with
The history of America’s one-hundred-year-long love-hate
relationship with white bread reveals a lot about contemporary efforts to change
the way we eat. Today, the alternative food movement favors foods deemed ethical
and environmentally correct to eat, and fluffy industrial loaves are about as
far from slow, local, and organic as you can get. Still, the beliefs of early
twentieth-century food experts and diet gurus, that getting people to eat a
certain food could restore the nation’s decaying physical, moral, and social
fabric, will sound surprisingly familiar. Given that open disdain for
“unhealthy” eaters and discrimination on the basis of eating habits grow
increasingly acceptable, White Bread is a timely and important examination of
what we talk about when we talk about food.
From the Hardcover
Amazon Best Books of the Month, March 2012: It's in, it's out,
it's good for you, it's bad for you: over the last hundred years, bread has gone
from industrial-strength cure-all to nutritionless fluff, and every place in
between. White Bread is Aaron Bobrow-Strain's look at the central place of
bread, not just on the American table but also in its discussions about
morality, class, race, and the environment. Bobrow-Strain takes readers from the
immigrant-run bakeries of the 1900s, which were associated with unsafe bread, to
the shining promise of industrially-made loaves that could bolster Americans
against communism, to the brown-bread revolution of the '70s and '80s. Along the
way, Bobrow-Strain shows that the history of bread was leavened with good
intentions and ironclad convictions--many of which succumbed to the ageless
hobgoblin of unintended consequences. Entertaining for fans of history, food,
and the history of food, White Bread reveals yet another facet to the
ever-complicated world of what we eat. --Darryl Campbell
I was bored so I made a peach tart. Then of
course, I ate it. I garnished with vanilla whipped cream (its the store bought
kind) and dusted with pumpkin pie spice. Preheat oven to 350 degrees f 1 9" pie
crust rolled out flat (use your favorite recipe or buy a frozen one) onto a foil
lined baking sheet (one with sides would be best). I took about 4 cups of
peaches (you can use canned if its not peach season. You'll need to drain 'em.)
2 table spoons of brown sugar 1/4 cup of honey 1/8 teaspoon each of ground
cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, ground clove and ground all-spice or
just use a teaspoon of the pre-mixed pumpkin or apple pie spice blend. 1/4 cup
granulated sugar Mix peaches with spices, honey and brown sugar. Arrange the
peaches (reserving the liquid) in the center of the pie crust leaving about an 1
1/2 edge all the way around. Crimp the edges of the pie crust. This will help
contain the filling while its baking. Brush the crust using the left over juice
from the peaches and dust the tart and crust with the granulated sugar. Bake in
preheated 350f degree oven for 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
Remove from oven and place on a rack to cool. You'll need to let this set for
about 45 minutes before ya serve it.
i am so happy i can be counted in the group of
people that can make a pie crust. i used to spend lots of time in the kitchen
with both of my grammies and i learned so much from both of them. my mom's mom
is the best pie baker in the whole wide world. she used to have 2 apple trees in
her backyard and when i was growning up she would make apple pie all fall long.
she taught me the secrets to pie crust and i sure am glad she did.

Oscarr Winner Matt Damon gives a heartfelt
performance in this "delightful surprise" (Lou Lumenick, New York Post) that's
based on a true story. When his teenage son gets into trouble, Benjamin Mee
(Damon) gives up a lucrative newspaper job to move his family to the most
unlikely of places: a zoo! With help from an eclectic staff, and with many
misadventures along the way, Benjamin embarks on a fresh beginning to restore
the dilapidated zoo to its former glory, while uniting his family. From the
director of Jerry Maguire, We Bought a Zoo is a "wonderful, warm and witty"
(Bill Bregoli, CBS Radio News) celebration of the human spirit.
adapted from a memoir by a British journalist, We Bought a Zoo feels entirely
like a Cameron Crowe film, with clear parallels to previous crowd-pleasers like
Jerry Maguire. Crowe introduces Benjamin Mee (Matt Damon in a role that recalls
his Contagion character) six months after the death of his wife. Since
everything reminds him of her, the California columnist decides to make a
change, starting with a new location. His realtor (Curb Your Enthusiasm's J.B.
Smoove), brother (Sideways' Thomas Haden Church), and sullen teenage son (Colin
Ford) try to talk him out of it, but Mee falls in love with a country manor that
comes with a strange stipulation: the tenant must manage the zoo that
accompanies the property. With his daughter's blessing, Mee takes the plunge.
Fortunately, he inherits an experienced staff, including MacCready (Angus
MacFadyen), Robin (Patrick Fugit), Lily (Elle Fanning), and Kelly (Scarlett
Johansson, lovely as ever in her least glamorous role to date). Mee's road to
reinvention offers few surprises, but Damon makes him a sympathetic figure who
finds the same kind of support system among the park personnel that Fugit's
Almost Famous writer found in the rock world, except Mee's relationships have
more staying power. If his detractors--a skeptical employee and an unctuous
inspector--feel like screenwriter constructs, Zoo represents a return to form
for Crowe after a series of missteps, including Elizabethtown. Better yet, the
real-life park that Mee acquired continues to lead by example as a humane
habitat for endangered species. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
