Description

America's food, from farm to supermarket to table, is the result of a continuing revolution in all areas of food production in the 19th. and 20th centuries. A great many of these revolutionary changes emanated from one city:Chicago. Although New York and San Francisco may be better known internationally as food meccas, Chicago- often called the most American of all big cities because it is the dominant metropolis of the Midwest - is the epicentre of America's industrial and distribution system.
