No one was ever going to mistake Man V Food for fine art Apart from the ridiculous food challenges like a pizza the size of a bus tire the core of the show was a Brooklyn actor traveling the country seeking out the best in dude food And one thing that rarely saw the light of day during the show was host Adam Richman's own relationship to food It was for the most part some guy traveling the country eating hearty of the Travel Channel's dime His enthusiasm for his subject made the show much better than it sounds and he at least opened a bright and airy window into the sort of restaurants that might get short shrift in a genre generally given over to gourmet but it wasn't big on biographyThis is where America the Edible sets the record straight To some extent yes it's Man V Food The Book but its strength is how Richman's descriptions of history and culture combine with his personal experiences in his career and his relationships to explain his relationship to food and our own It's about diners the day after a disastrous audition bistros in cities where he's performing in a play road trips in a rickety jeep through rural Hawaii and hometown pride in Brooklyn's annual street fair
