Best Food Writing 2013

We rated this book:


This year’s Best Food Writing 2013 collection, edited by Holly Hughes, contains everything a foodie (and perhaps non-foodie) might want to read. Hughes has brought together a fabulous set of essays and divided them into seven sections that cover ways that we eat now – Slow Cooking, Slow Eating by Edward Behr or Cooking Isn’t Fun by Tracie McMillan – to critical palates – I Ate My First McRib, And I Regret It by Katherine Shilcutt. The more than four dozen essays originate from literary magazines to newspapers to blogs…and everything in between. One poignant contribution is His Saving Grace by Kevin Pang, which profiles chef Curtis Duffy who struggled and sacrificed to make his mark on the culinary world. But you’ll also find humor as you devour When the Kids Make You Breakfast for Mother’s Day by Kim Foster.

You may check out the book to read Michael Pollan or Pete Wells, but you won’t be able to put it down for the variety of voices, stories, and foods. Who knew that meals could provide such richness? Obviously Hughes does. A top-notch collection, Hughes brings together a wonderful mix that is sure to please the foodie in all of us.
