Best Food Writing 2006
Da Capo Press, Sep 28, 2006 - Cooking - 384 pages
Best Food Writing 2006 assembles, for its seventh year, the most exceptional writing from the past year's books, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, and Web sites. Included are the best writers on everything from celebrated chefs to the travails of the home cook, from food sourcing at the greenmarket to equipping one's kitchen, from erudite culinary history to food-inspired memoirs. Like past collections, the 2006 round-up will include pieces from food-writing stars such as Robb Walsh, Ruth Reichl, Thomas McNamee, John Thorne, Calvin Trillin, Amanda Hesser, Colman Andrews, Jason Epstein, and Jeffrey Steingarten. Opinionated, evocative, nostalgic, brash, thought-provoking, and sometimes just plain funny, it's a tasty sampler to dip into time and again, whether you're in the mood for caviar — or hot dogs.

Not bad. Perhaps a little too many essays. I probably preferred some of the earlier writings. I'm not a huge fan of the various "I'm neurotic, went out out to eat essays." I was bad and forgot to write down authors I like. Ah well. Read full review
