For the obsessive food lover
A word of warning for those who love to cook, this book will give you a dangerous amount of ideas! This is by far the best collection of stories about food adventures - from truffle hunting in Italy to cooking with the microwave, the author seems to have done it all. I couldn't put this book down, with the exception of the times I went to go try a recipe in the kitchen. My wife suggested this purchase, and now regrets it with my burning desire to make naturally leavened bread and travel to Japan for the best beef in the world. This is a treat for anyone who loves food, and for those of us who think that 4 hours of cooking time is about average for a meal it demonstrates that we are not alone in our desires.

A must-read for anyone who likes to eat, or cook
I bought this book when it came out in hardcover and thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven't laughed so hard since Calvin & Hobbes was in the newspaper. But besides being entertaining, it's also educational. I learned about food history, recipe secrets and even a little geography. Definitely a keeper. Plus, for all you attention-deficit folks, or those of you with kids who can't read a book from cover to cover, it has the added benefit of being able to be picked up and started at any point (well, at least it doesn't need to be read in a linear fashion).
