When it comes to food, have you ever wondered "What is American cuisine?"
Long Beach Island resident David Page covers that and more in his new book "Food Americana: The Remarkable People and Incredible Stories behind America’s Favorite Dishes."
Page, a two-time Emmy Award-winning television producer and the creator of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," shares the backstories of many popular dishes.
"The idea for the book has been percolating in the back of my mind for quite some time and I finally forced myself to start researching and writing," Page said.
"Food has been a passion of mine," he added, " ... starting when I was living in Europe and enjoying the remarkable foods of Europe, Africa and the Middle East."
