    Calvin Trillin s food writing ranks right up there with the late Laurie Colwin, Jane and Michael Stern and Jeffrey Steingarten It s food as experience, quest, pilgrimage, sacrament, with a lower case s And, it s a salute to Food Done Right Done Write We ve all had memorable dishes muffuletta from the Central Grocery in New Orleans comes to mind, as do J.K s baby backribs on the Outer Banks and perfectly cooked beef with fried beet and sweet potato chips from Aujour dui in 1989 in Bosto Calvi...

    I enjoy reading Calvin Trillin When he writes about his now late wife, Alice, it s some of the most touching prose I ve ever read His descriptions of food and his wonderful willingness to throw himself into a search for the best fish taco is fabulous But I agree with another reviewer who commented that Trillin seems to withhold too much of himself in these essays He comments lightly on trying to convince his daughters to return from California to New York, but never really delvesdeeply I enjoy reading Calvin Trillin When he writes about his now late wife, Alice, it s some of the most touching prose I ve ever read His descriptions of food and his wonderful willingness to throw himself into a search for the best fish taco is fabulous But I agree with another reviewer who commented that Trillin seems to withhold too much of himself in these essays He comments lightly on trying to convince his daughters to return from California to New York, but never really delvesdeeply into his feelings or his relationship with them While it s certainly his right to maintain his privacy and that of his family, it does make the food writing sufficiently less personal and thus ultimatelyforgettable.But as someone who has moved from New York to mid Missouri and not even to Kansas City where at least a variety of great BBQ would be available , I miss the food options that Trillin has so readily at his fingertips I too used to havedelivery options than I currently have restaura...

    A delightful read, with roughly one laugh out loud moment per chapter, and each chapter is one adventure in fine eats Trillin is a droll man who skates through the world of epicures with a slightly jaundiced eye and athan a few bon mots He s appropriately skeptical, but also very reasonable What s good is good, and he cuts through the hype and blather with a sharpened pen He does have a few things he loves to go on about boudin, the Cajun sausage, is a repeating theme, as is take out A delightful read, with roughly one laugh out loud moment per chapter, and each chapter is one adventure in fi...

    Feeding a Yen is strikingly similar, in many ways, to Jeffrey Steingarten s book The Man Who Ate Everything Yet while Trillin shares Steingarten s obsession in food, as well as his humor, he lacks Steingarten s meticulousness and focus As such, while The Man Who Ate Everything provides the reader with a fair amount of practical know...
