Synopsis

Typhoid Fever, a bacteria infection caused by Salmonella typhi and spread by poor hygiene practices (read - feces contamination of food or water). Mary Mallon, later known as Typhoid Mary, was the first person traced and identified as spreading the disease. A cook in the New York City area, Mary was associated with 53 cases of typhoid, and 3 deaths, and although she was told to give up cooking she would disappear and assume alternate identities, reappearing to cook for new families and exposing them to the disease. Bourdain’s book explores life in the early 1900s in the New York area, along with the kitchen practices that allowed the spread of this disease throughout the affluent households where Mary worked.-
