Description

We do not come into the world with an innate sense of taste and nutrition; as omnivores, we have to learn how and what to eat, how sweet is too sweet, and what food will give us the most energy for the coming day. But how does this education happen? What are the origins of taste?

In First Bite, the beloved food writer Bee Wilson draws on the latest research from food psychologists, neuroscientists, and nutritionists to reveal that our food habits are shaped by a whole host of factors, including family, culture, memory, gender, hunger, and love. An exploration of the extraordinary and surprising origins of our tastes and eating habits—from people who can only eat foods of a certain color to an amnesiac who can eat meal after meal without getting full—First Bite also shows us how we can change our palates to lead healthier, happier lives.

      • content: Narrator Alison Larkin evokes the listener's curiosity about this detailed exploration of relearning how to eat. Based on the premise that food preferences are learned, FIRST BITE argues that the key to changing one's diet and adopting healthy food choices is changing one's thinking, rather than receiving nutrition education. Larkin's diverse voices and lively accents bring out the international flavor of research that compares global food and eating habits. The plethora of information, which includes industrial and scientific influences on natural food and our eating habits, occasionally threatens to become dry listening. But these sections are effectively tempered by Larkin's lively tone as well as some of the book's surprising discoveries. M.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine

        “Most of what we learn about food happens when we’re children—when we’re sitting at the kitchen table (if you’re lucky enough to have one), being fed,” says Wilson (Consider the Fork), a food writer and historian. Wilson takes a scholarly approach in this smart and telling journey that outlines food habits and where they originate. Mixing science with anecdotes, she incorporates past studies, including one landmark research study on infants’ inherent patterns of taste, explicating the sometimes-conflicting theories scholars spun from the outcome, Wilson debunks the notion that appetite is genetic and the idea that the body naturally selects what it needs. Old reports are countered by the latest research from food psychologists, neuroscientists, and biologists. Using brief tales, Wilson details many disorders across the consumption spectrum in an insightful and earnest tone that appeals to food-lovers and parents. Discussing everything from adults with stringent eating patterns to gendered weight misperceptions and changes in cultural norms, Wilson delineates how diets develop and, more importantly, how to make healthy modifications.
