Editorial Reviews

A Boston Globe Bestseller, 11/4/12Amazon.com 2012 Best Books of the Year: Food LitBooklist, starred review, October 2012“This exciting series has taken a lot of the work but none of the pleasure out of tracking down outstanding expressions of the love of food. Now in its thirteenth edition, Best Food Writing is not falsely titled. There is nothing less than serious, exciting, entertaining, and edifying writing to be found here.”Kirkus Reviews, 10/15/12“Hughes once again pulls together the year’s tastiest examples from the growing field of food writing...In an era of celebrity chefs and much-hyped restaurants, this collection is thankfully absent the pretentious musings of restaurateurs and TV stars…A collection of strong writing on fascinating topics that will appeal to foodies and essay lovers alike.”Infodad.com, 11/29/12“This is food writing that goes beyond food itself, that sometimes deals with the intricacies of food preparation and consumption but even more often discusses what food means, what it stands for, where it fits into life rather than where it fits into our mouths and bellies. It is for readers who find the contemplation of food in a larger context particularly delicious.”
