If you have read Simon's first book, Eat My Globe, you will know that this simple but nutritious dish is the one that saved his life. A soup-like red lentil dahl based on his family's recipe, it is one of the most satisfying dishes you will ever eat.

What makes “Eat My Globe” such a pleasure is that Simon Majumdar seeks not only to saturate himself with sensations but to soak up the significance of every bite he takes along the way...

Reading about Simon Majumdar's American food adventures [on FED, WHITE, and BLUE] makes me prouder than ever of our stars and stripes cuisine. . . . His palate is second to none. . . . I should know: I've been on the wrong side of his critics' table on Iron Chef America many times.

This [FED, WHITE, and BLUE] is a remarkable book. A rich and deeply personal account of food in America as seen from the other side of the pond. Full of wonderful stories and delicious thoughts. I never imagined that I would learn so much.

FED, WHITE, and BLUE is the perfect way for readers to explore his deep connections to food and the heart, beginning with an ever-healing family dal recipe and extending all the way to his love of martinis and barbecue alike.
