2008's best food writing will make you hungry
If you can read a recipe by Chez Panisse's Alice Waters without a twinge of hunger, you have a stronger stomach than me. Like a trip to the grocery store, the recipe section of "Best Food Writing 2008" should not be undertaken on an empty stomach. The 400-page anthology, now on shelves, includes plenty of other writing: on cloned cows, food in post-Katrina New Orleans, local restaurateurs, sublime burgers and other food trends. Read more here.
