Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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.)
