9780140232592: The Penguin Book of Food and Drink

Reading and eating go together like salmon and dill sauce, and this anthology of modern writing on gastronomy is no exception. Favorite food writers, such as M. F. K. Fisher and Elizabeth David, are included in this compilation of articles and essays, each reflecting the rich tradition of gastronomic journalism that has flourished in this century. From S. J. Perelman's "Farewell, My Lovely Appetizer" and George Orwell's pungent memories of an unsavory Paris kitchen to Raymond Sokolov's explanation of the eating preferences of cannibals and Calvin Trillin's eloquent plea for a new Thanksgiving menu -- here are classic and unusual examples of food writing at its most savory, exotic, and satisfying.

Product Description:

Celebrating a century of gastronomic writing, this collection shows that there is a rich tradition of literature about food and drink. Paul Levy's engaging selection of words from both sides of the Atlantic establishes its canon for the first time.

From the Author:

An anthology of literary writing about food and drink
In this book I have tried to bring together the best (and most entertaining)authors who have written about food and drink in a literary way. In this volume you will find very few recipes, because this is a collection designed to appeal not just to the minority who are keen cooks, but to all of us who are interested in what we eat and drink. Oddly enough, literary writing about food and drink was more common in the USA than in Britain, and the selection reflects this, with some classic American writing that will be new even to those who are well-read in the subject. The selection is the product of thirty-odd years' reading, and I hope you get as much pleasure from browsing through it as I did making the choices.
