Item description for Her Fork in the Road: Women Celebrate Food and Travel (Travelers' Tales Guides) by Lisa Bach...
Women's relationships with food are passionate and obsessive, embracing and comforting, complex and frustrating. This savory sampling of stories --- by some of the best writers in and out of the food and travel fields --- journeys to the heart of these age-old relationships, taking readers from the familiar kitchens of contemporary America to the far reaches of the globe. In France, an over-enthusiastic waitress serves M. F. K. Fisher the lunch of a lifetime to sustain her on a walk to Avallon. In Tunisia, Ruth Reichl dines at the home of a local, where the meal is eaten with the hands and a dash of sensuality. And in Fiji, where the women are big and beautiful and walk like royalty, Laurie Gough encounters food as a grand and constant celebration. The lively, literate tone of Her Fork in the Road makes it both an enduring read and an ideal companion for the kitchen or the road.
