Reviews - What do customers think about Spice Chronicles: Exotic Tales of a Hungry Traveler.?

From caviar to cannibalism in one fell soup - funny and absorbing  Dec 20, 2007
Rolnick has found new and fascinating things to write about in the food world. This doesn't resemble any other food book in my collection - it's a wild mix of travel writing, personal anecdote, heady observation, exotic recipes, parody, and some groan-out-loud puns. Rolnick manages to put a food spin on Shakespeare, Wagner, and the Ten Commandments, and he's written down what I imagine is the first account of cannibalism from the culinary, rather than anthropological, point of view. The index alone is as entertaining as the book itself (two of the "C" entries are "Coleslaw, North Korean hallucination" and "Cookie, exasperating purchase by Samuel Beckett"). In short, I ate it up. Definitely an offbeat but satisfying book for a food lover.
