Oxford University Press
, publisher of the 20 volume Oxford English Dictionary
, has a few things to say about food too.
Andrew Smith, editor of The Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink, will post to Oxford University Press blog every Thursday in May.
Smith's first post is about the history of America's favorite fake culinary icons from Ronald McDonald to Betty Crocker. Smith wants to hear who our favorite kitchen characters are. Hey, what about Cap'n Crunch and ho-ho-ho The Green Giant?
