If you only buy one book....,
This review is from: The Man Who Ate Everything (20-20 Special Edition) (Paperback)
Never read this book in bed... you will get hungry and start cooking!
This it seems is a collection of foodie articles of the highest quality writing on a variety of foodie subjects.Its not a recipe book, rather the thoughts and actions of a man who loves 'food' and all its aspects. It should appeal to many people not just foodies.
Steingarten's style is intelligent but not academic. Similar to Heston Blumenthal I think.
All the chapter subjects appealed to me. This is a book one could read and reread.
The BBQ chapter makes me want to get on a plane, hire a car and spend 2 weeks driving across the South eating at every place he mentions.
