Or: Why didn't I think of that?

...A famous prof in my field keeps a blog called the Language of Food (now also a book; http://languageoffood.blogspot.nl/) and has a Stanford course with the same title. The syllabus and reading materials are here: http://web.stanford.edu/class/linguist62n/ . It includes a link to the New York Public Library's MENU PROJECT, http://menus.nypl.org/

Shared in case anyone else is as excited as I am.

e.g. Fun extension: The language of VEGAN food.

I recently ordered that book for our store from the Norton rep! I was like "Well, if it doesn't sell, I'll buy it!" Right up my alley.
