Description
Celebrated journalist R.W. ("Johnny") Apple was a veteran political reporter, a New York Times bureau chief, and an incisive and prolific writer. But the role he was most passionate about was food anthropologist. Known both for his restless open mind and an appetite to match, Apple was also a culinary scholar—witty, wide-ranging and intensely knowledgeable about his subjects. This book collects the best of Apple's food writing from America, England, Europe, Asia, and Australia; each of the more than 50 essays recounts extraordinary meals and little-known facts about some of the world's most excellent foods.

"Johnny Apple's magnetic writing about food makes it crystal clear why food ought to matter as much to the rest of us as it meant to him: He understood that food is the purest expression of human culture. And he knew that what will save us in the end is the embrace of food diversity in all its cultural and biological splendor."—Alice Waters
