Reviews

"Using humor, gusto, and her sensitive if skeptical palate to great effect, Stephanie Lucianovic explains the mechanics of picky eating. She shows us why we like some foods and not others, and illuminates the mysteries of our sense of taste. It takes a picky eater to understand picky eaters, and we should all be grateful for Lucianovic's inspired work."--Amanda Hesser, co-founder of FOOD52.com and author of The Essential New York Times Cookbook

"As a diner who will gladly eat the eyeballs off a shrimp, but who recoils in horror at the site of a raisin in an oatmeal cookie, I adored Suffering Succotash. Stephanie Lucianovic's charming and hilarious exploration of why we hate the foods we hate is packed to the gills with research on everything from sword-swallowers to supertasters and yet reads like a guilty pleasure. I couldn't put it down."--Suzanne Morrison, author of Yoga Bitch "Lucianovic proves that hanging out with a picky eater doesn't have to be torture--do not judge the picky eater, just laugh as she learns to enjoy cruciferous vegetables."--Beth Lisick, author of Helping Me Help Myself and co-creator of Porchlight Storytelling Series "Hilarious and honest, Suffering Succotash is a fascinating read if you've ever gagged on your greens (or know someone who has)."--Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, authors of Spoiled and founders of GoFugYourself.com "These other strands, and the seamless (and often hilarious) manner in which Lucianovic connects them to the scientific questions and answers, make Suffering Succotash the perfect popular science book for a reader that doesn't think he or she wants to read a popular science book."--ScienticAmerican.com "Stephanie Lucianovic, a culinary school graduate, ex-cheesemonger, and food writer, understands the picky eater's pain."--BonAppetit.com "It's a funny and fascinating ride through the world of taste-bud analysis and the biggest bugaboo of picky eaters -- 'texture violations.'"--San Jose Mercury News "[F]or a non-picky eater like me, reading Suffering Succotash is a necessary, if guilt-inducing wake-up call...Fortunately, Stephanie delivers the news with such aplomb and humor that I didn't wind up self-flagellating with a garland of raisins for too long."--KQED Bay Area Bites
