Description
"Food writing is stepping out," legendary food writer Ruth Reichl declares at the start of this, the inaugural edition of Best American Food Writing . "It's about time...Food is, in a very real sense, redesigning the world." Indeed, the twenty-eight pieces in this volume touch on every pillar of society: from the sense memories that connect a family through food, to the scientific tinkering that gives us new snacks to share, to the intersections of culinary culture with some of our most significant political issues. At times a celebration, at times a critique, at times a wondrous reverie, the Best American Food Writing 2018 is brimming with delights both circumspect and sensuous. Dig in!
