Kosher Nation by Sue Fishkoff has a fascinating premise--that of those who purchase Kosher foods, the majority are, in fact, non-Jews! Among the non-Jews buying Kosher, people with food allergies make up a large percentage. I've often wondered what the various Kosher symbols mean and how food "becomes Kosher," and for that reason, this book is definitely on my to-read list. The publisher recommends it for "anyone interested in food, religion, Jewish identity, and big business," so I'm sure this book will fascinate me!
