Format: Paperback
An interesting selection of short stories which range from unexpected tea with indian guru's to the wonders of molecular gastronomy. Many of the writers are well known from TV cookery shows and newspaper columns and the style of writing varies hugely from casual conversations to more in depth gastronomic discourse. However it is the simplest stories closest to home which often are the most moving and engaging, and the one about a glass of fresh orange juice in Italy has a moral for us all...

This was the first food book I've ever been able to surprise my husband with (he's usually in line for the latest as soon as it comes out) - and it was a home run! He loved the essay format, which let him bounce around from one food writer to another without needing to go in any order - and the mix of authors, from the very famous like Bourdain to lesser-known food writers offered a nice varied diet for the reader. A great gift for anyone who loves to eat and travel!

This collection of stories seems to have been put together mainly for commercial reasons. The name of Anthony Bourdain being the initial attraction, I suppose. There are two problems with the book. One is that the stories are banal and tired and the other one is that the quality of writing is indifferent at best. The level, perhaps of a small provincial nwespaper. Heavy going through this thin book and no epiphany at the end .

Bourdain usually does not disappoint - at least as far as I'm concerned. His writing is just as fast paced as his commentary on TV. Always hilarious, always entertaining. When you can actually taste what he writes about, you know you've got a good writer in your hands...

I have read this book a little at a time and that seems what it is meant for. Each chapter is, in itself, fascinating. The book as a whole is, indeed, a feast!

Bourdain seems to mellow, as years go by, and to become quite nostalgic. Then, like a cobra, he bites... pleasant reading, even when irritating
