Editorial Reviews

Food Fanatics
I loved reading it because the chefs and foodies talk about exactly what they want to talk about, free of agendas. Refreshing. Some share recipes from their childhood or culture of origin, others share a personal food memory, dining with royalty...there is something for everyone.

A charming title, Creating a Meal You'll Love: Notable chefs & food writers on their unforgettable dining experiences. The editor, Mark Chimsky-Lustig, approaches some two dozen food writers and chefs, asking them to contribute stories that will raise money for the restaurant industry's charity devoted to ending childhood hunger, Share Our Strength. Earnest, funny, wistful, practical, the essays include contributions by IACP and James Beard winner (Mimi Sheraton), TV star (Jaden Hair of "Steamy Kitchen") and a devotee of New York's vanishing Jewish delis (David Sax).

Some essays are wistful; some are funny; some are informative, but a real love for food and its place in our lives shines through all of them. The beautiful essay by Raghavan Iyer entitled "Brahmin Soul Food: A Father's One-Way Journey to the Life Hereafter" will stay with you forever, and is worth the price of the book on its own if you ask me. With Christmas coming up, this book would make a lovely addition to the bookshelf of anybody who loves food - or simply loves good writing.
