Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Food & Booze: A Tin House Literary Feast celebrates seven years of the dazzling writing and delicious recipes of Tin House magazine's Readable Feast and Blithe Spirits departments. Literature and gastronomy converge in an idiosyncratic survey of everything from lotus fruit, elk, and absinthe to bread, eggs, and brandy Old-Fashioneds. Ranging from the humorous to the lyrical, the historic to the personal, and humble to haute cuisine, this elegant collection includes pieces by writers such as Steve Almond, Lan Samantha Chang, Lydia Davis, Chris Offutt, Grace Paley, Francine Prose, Elissa Schappell, and Michelle Wildgen.

Review:

"Tin House magazine contributor Wildgen collects essays on apples and odes to martinis. In the provocatively titled 'Up Your Goose with a Boneless Duck,' Chris Offutt describes an unusual dish he wanted to prepare for 'a grand autumn feast' in Missoula, Mont. In 'The End of Laughter,' Lan Samantha Chang recalls meals with an unnamed friend: 'We ate for love, for sympathy and fun. We ate out of confusion and emptiness and lust. We ate our meals in public and kept our true hungers a secret.' Essays are supplemented with recipes for, among others, Steve's Ultimate Maple Crunch Chicken Salad, Eggs with Mushrooms and Truffles, Khoresht Bademjan and Oxtail Soup with Porcini Mushrooms. Not all selections work as well. 'Dinner with the Borgias: Power, Politics, Passion, Provender, and Poison in the Italian Renaissance,' by Lisa Grossman, proves less than satisfying, and Mark Statman's 'Mezcal' fails to gel. However, the bulk of the collection is a gourmand-worthy spread." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
