The Lexicon of Real American Food

My copy of the latest book by Jane and Michael Stern arrived yesterday.
 
It's a long list of foods and food terms from American Chop Suey to Ya Ka Mein (the latter is new to me).  A lot of photos, although many entries do not have them, some recipes, and some profiles of food legends and some advice on where to get some foods.
 
I was delighted to see an entry for Old Forge Pizza, but no mention of Joe Rogo?
Some entries are a surprise: Now I know where the term "doggy bag" came from!

MD-
Just picked up my copy last night.  Even though I have been following Roadfood for about 15 years now, there are plenty of items in here I had never heard of before, like Gerber Sandwich, Sugar on Snow and Hanky Panky.  Lots of great photos, too.  Still, the highlight for me is seeing a certain Roadfooder getting his (much deserved) very own listing!
