Item Description...
Food --- its smells, textures, colors, flavors, and rituals --- is tied intrinsically to place. This heartwarming, surprising, and sumptuous collection of stories reveals our obsession with how food nourishes and sustains us, teaches us about other cultures, and creates community and connection with others. From the award-winning editor of Travelers' Tales Food, here is another collection of funny and sometimes frightening true stories of eating that will make your mouth water while helping you better understand other cultures. Notable authors include Jeffrey Steingarten, Frances Mayes, Jonathan Raban, John Krich, and Maxine Kumin.

Food for Thought  Mar 22, 2001
How can you resist a book that includes an essay about the wonderful experience of eating one potato chip? I finished reading these essays in a jiffy and still hunger for a new collection of essays about food as good as this one.
 
Smug and Pompous  Dec 16, 2000
Imagine the biggest bore or show off you have ever had the misfortune to be waylaid by in a plane or at a party. Now you've got the idea of this book. Apparently, the writers, instead of sharing their travel and food adventures, engage in a sort of "Nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, I've been to Timbuktu and you haven't," monologue. Since the Travelers' Tales series books are usually pretty good, this was disappointing. An example of how very bad it was, in one article about bad road coffee, in the first paragraph Tom Bently reminds us how he kissed his Krups. He couldn't just say "coffee-maker," but he must share with us the upscale brand name of his coffee maker. How gauche can you get?
 
More than just food  May 28, 2000
I guess I'm a functional eater, you know, food is fuel. So this book really opened my eyes (my mouth?) and got me thinking about food in a completely new way. Great stuff, and funny too. Quirky, philosophical. Excuse me, I've got to go eat something new.
