This anthology of food writings from the "New Yorker" addresses cuisine both haute and bas, not only in prose but with a generous selection of hilarious cartoons.
From the Publisher:
An entertaining compilation of sophisticated essays and cartoons on the world of food and drink from the pages of The New Yorker features Susan Orlean's tribute to Cuban cuisine, Calvin Trillin's instructions on how to find the perfect New York bagel, and other works by Joan Didion, Anthony Bourdain, John McPhee, Adam Gopnik, John Cheever, and Roald Dahl, among others. 35,000 first printing.
Annotation:
New Yorker anthologies are often very satisfying reads, filled with exquisitely fascinating, eclectic pieces, and this food-focused volume is no exception. With writing that spans the decades, eight sections cover food in every conceivable light with essays by the likes of Anthony Bourdain, M.F.K. Fisher, Malcolm Gladwell, and Chang-Rae Lee. A few of the highlights include "Raw Faith," which follows a nun studying the cheese molds of France, Calvin Trillin exploring the dark truth about the negligible differences between red and white wine in "The Red and the White," and Noah Baumbach's dryly humorous relationship story, "The Zagat History of My Last Relationship." With food-focused New Yorker cartoons scattered throughout.

David Remnick served as the Moscow Correspondent for the Washington Post. LENIN"S TOMB, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1994, was the result.

Remnick has written for a variety of magazines, including Foreign Affairs, but he is most associated with The New Yorker, having written many of their celebrated profiles.
