About the Author

Alan Richman is a contributing writer for GQ, Conde Nast Traveler, and Bon Appetit, as well as the newly appointed Dean of Food Journalism atthe French Culinary Institute. He lives in Westchester County, New York, with his wife, Lettie Teague, a wine columnist and editor, and their two dogs, Sophie and Rudy. The dogs love Alan's cooking.


Eating for a living isn't quite as easy as it sounds, at least not when you're reading this collection of deliciously humorous essays from James Beard Award-winning food critic Richman. From his less-than-satisfactory experiences in some of France's finest restaurants to his musings on the since-faded glories of dining in Montreal, he takes readers on a culinary journey around the world with entertaining detours in China, Naples, and Los Angeles. Whether enrolling in cooking school or exploring the mysteries of truffles, Richman's dry, witty prose will delight readers who crave good culinary writing. Many will recognize him from GQ magazine, in which several of these piece originally ran. Recommended for larger public libraries, especially those where other culinary collections such as James Villas's Stalking the Green Fairy: And Other Fantastic Adventures in Food and Drink are popular with readers.-John Charles, Scottsdale P.L., AZ Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

More than an extraordinary food writer, Richman is an extraordinary writer, period...reflexively entertaining.--Food & Wine
