Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From bat on the island of Fais to chicken on a Russian train to barbecue in the American heartland, from mutton in Mongolia to couscous in Morocco to tacos in Tijuana - on the road, food nourishes us not only physically, but intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually too. It can be a gift that enables a traveler to survive, a doorway into the heart of a tribe, or a thread that weaves an indelible tie; it can be awful or ambrosial - and sometimes both at the same time. Celebrate the riches and revelations of food with this 38-course feast of true tales set around the world.

Review:

"This compilation brings together tales of food encounters across the globe from 38 writers, chefs, poets, and journalists. Readers will trek round the globe and sample exotic fare along with Anthony Bourdain, who discusses the variety of foods available in Manhattan; chef and baker David Lebovitz, who provides a humorous review of recent food movements in France; writer Simon Winchester, who recalls the passionate responses provoked by his article about eating dog in Korea, and many others. Naomi Duguid has tea in Nepal; Doug Mack takes a barbeque tour of Kansas City; and John T. Newman takes on the notorious durian, a fruit that evokes fear, disgust, even cowardice. From learning to cook in a sparsely equipped Moroccan kitchen to sharing a train car with Siberians in Russia, readers will enjoy a tremendous variety of locales, cultures, and foodstuffs. These virtual vacations are an easy way into adventures with new foods and cultures. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
