§As reported by publisher
Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Hot dogs were ranked as America’s third-favorite food in 1994 behind pizza and sandwiches. Every year, Americans eat about twenty billion hot dogs. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day alone this year, Americans will eat seven billion hot dogs, reports Oscar Mayer. If these hot dogs were laid end to end, they would form a link of dogs 500 times longer than the distance between California and New York. In All-American Frank: A History of the Hot Dog, you get the inside story of the history, manufacture, marketing, cooking, selling, and consumption of frankfurters. It’s a frank (pun intended) appraisal of the hot dog’s many roles in nutrition, cuisine, the food industry, and American popular culture. The book covers the development and rising popularity of the hot dog. It also presents recipes, both for making your own hot dogs and for using store-bought franks as a cooking ingredient.
