"""In a time when the bookshelves and small screen are filled with globe-trotting food personalities, Apple brings something special to the mix."--"The Denver Post""With R.W. Apple, Jr., triumph is a given. He approaches food writing the same way he approached political reporting or war reporting or parachuting in."--Calvin Trillin in "The New Yorker""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, Chez Panisse "As much as Johnny Apple loved politics, he might have loved food even more. He loved searching for it, learning about it, writing about it, and most of all, eating it. This classic collection of food writing from one of" The New York Times'" most renowned writers deserves to be on the shelf -- or kitchen table or in the travel bag -- of each and every foodie." --Nina and Tim Zagat, "Zagat Survey""There will never again be someone as robustly brilliant at both table and typewriter as Johnny Apple. Taken together as a menu degustation, the full magnificence of this erudite explorer emerges. I hope that anyone with a hedonistic appetite for life, learning, flavor, places, people, and passion will keep this book by their bedside for a nightly feeding and smile."--Danny Meyer, author of "Setting the Table""""Can anyone resist the work of a writer who could both thrill to a thrush pate in a French gastronomic temple and also get giddy over...the ideal Philly cheesesteak? Well, I suppose some people could, but I'd never want to have dinner with them."--"Fortune"Reseña del editor:
R. W. Apple Jr. was celebrated for his political writing at "The New York Times" as a correspondent and bureau chief. But whenever possible - especially on assignment - he went in search of the world's most wonderful food. "Far Flung And Well Fed" is the best of legendary "Times" reporter Apple's food writing, moving from America to England, through Europe and then into Asia and Australia to recount extraordinary meals, little-known facts, and the provenance of some of the world's most excellent foods. Each of the fifty-five essays presents a world in miniature, from the origin of an ingredient in a dish, to its history, to the vivid personalities - including Apple's wife, Betsey - who cook, serve and eat those dishes. "Far Flung And Well Fed" is a classic collection of food writing - lively, warm and rich with a sense of place and taste.
