Here’s a couple:
Robb Walsh – Are You Really Going To Eat That? Confessions of a Culinary Thrill Seeker
Ruth Reichl > Comfort Me With Appples and Garlic and Sapphires
Anthony Bourdain – A Cook’s Tour
Julia Child’s biography, fascinating reading:
Noel Riley Fitch – An Appetite for Life
I also love Calvin Trillin’s books. I’m reading ‘Feeding a Yen’ at the moment and it’s great reading, and makes me very, very, hungry!
Calvin Trillin may be dated by now, but still an excellent, stimulating, fun read. Naugahyde still has a Website (a reference to one of his books).
Two books that I read over and over again are "The Artful Eater" by Edward Behr, and "The Man Who Ate Everything" by Jeffery Steingarten (he has other works; he’s the third, smartalec judge on ‘Ironchef America’").
Among my favrite books in this genre are those by Calvin Trillin:
1) "Feeding a Yen: Savoring Local Specialties from Kansas City to Cuzco";
2) "Travels with Alice" (Alice is his wife);
3) "The Tummy Trilogy" ("American Fried", "Third Helpings" and "Alice, Let’s Eat")
4) "Food Lover’s Guide to the Best Ethnic Eating in New York City" (co-authored with Robert Seitsema)
Right now I am reading Southern Belly and the subtitle is "the ultimate food lover’s companion to the South" It covers 10 states, gives a lot of interesting facts and some good restaurant suggestions.
Can anyone recommend good books related to traveling the country and eating in restaurants? Something with a compilation of essays or something like that? If I can’t do it, I’d at least like to read about it. We’re still talking about food in case you’re wondering. Any help would be much appreciated.
