Product description


Best Food Writing 2011 isn’t only about food, but—more importantly—our relationships with food, how it serves us, how we serve it. For those who have developed the fine art of eating, whether it’s fried Twinkies or the incredibly-difficult-to-prepare fried lettuce, Best Food Writing 2011 is the gift to receive this holiday season.”
Edible Boston, Winter 2011

Midwest Book Review, December 2011
“From how 'soul food' expanded African American culture to how a cook changed from a recipe-follower to a cook operating on instinct and personal knowledge, this is packed with deliciously intriguing discussions of all types of foods, trends, and personal experiences and is a 'must' for literary and culinary collections alike.”

Tucson Citizen, 1/6/12
“This collection has something to please the tastes of almost every reader.”

“A compendium of all that’s new and exciting for lovers of delicious cuisine. Essays on the joys of frying, what the rich and the poor buy and why, and some delightful guilty pleasures make this paperback ideal reading for those with good taste.”
