The 18th edition of the classic food writing anthology that serves up
“a menu of delicious food, colorful characters, and tales of strange and
wonderful food adventures” (Booklist) each year.
For eighteen years, this anthology has served up the cream of each year's crop of food writing, from legendary figures like Anthony Bourdain to lauded chefs like Alice Waters, alongside movers-and-shakers like J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, and Besha Rodell.
The 2017 edition promises to continue in that tradition with a dynamic mix of writers; from seasoned journalists and authors to star chefs and up-and-coming bloggers. Brought together by Holly Hughes's keen eye and taste for the hottest stories and biggest trends, Best Food Writing 2017 offers 50 essays that encompass provocative journalism, intriguing profiles, moving memoir, and more.
