Book Review "Something to Food About"

I saw the cover of this book and was instantly intrigued by it...aren't you?

I love the veggie art

I read this synopsis and couldn't wait to start in on the book:

Questlove is a drummer, producer, musical director, culinary entrepreneur, and New York Times best-selling author. What unites all of his work is a profound interest in creativity. In somethingtofoodabout, Questlove applies his boundless curiosity to the world of food. In conversations with ten innovative chefs in America, he explores what makes their creativity tick, how they see the world through their cooking and how their cooking teaches them to see the world. The conversations begin with food but they end wherever food takes them. Food is fuel. Food is culture. Food is history. And food is food for thought. 

Then I cracked open the book and was instantly disappointed.  Perhaps as the numerous Amazon reviews have stated "I don't get it."

I wanted a history of food but really it was just heavy and too verbose to my liking.

I am sure this book is for someone...but that someone is not me.

I received a copy of this book for review from Blogging for Books.  However the opinions expressed are my own.
