The reviews on this page are for previous editions of the "Best Food Writing" series---that's Amazon.com logic for you.
I have read, or rather savored, the 2003 edition, and it is by far the best of the lot. It's more well rounded and has an interesting and wider range of writers and writing. And this edition doesn't mine only the usual suspects for pieces. Sure the big publications are here, but so are newsletters, small publications, and even book chapters. This is a great place to discover new writers, visit with some familar ones, and follow the careers of still others. We even used it as our textbook in our food writing class.

I really liked the 2000 and 2001 versions of this series. Those anthologies had a more down to earth feel. This new 2002 edition seems to have more selections from food insiders who just come off as spoiled brats. My advice is to skip 2002. Maybe 2003 will be a better year for food essays.
