    kindle à Feeding a Yen Savoring Local Specialties from Kansas City to Cuzco Ö Paperback Ü citybreakscheap Feeding a Yen Savoring Local Specialties from Kansas City to CuzcoI enjoy reading Calvin Trillin When he writes about his now late wife Alice it's some of the most touching prose I've ever read His descriptions of food and his wonderful willingness to throw himself into a search for the best fish taco is fabulous But I agree with another reviewer who commented that Trillin seems to withhold too much of himself in these essays He comments lightly on trying to convince his daughters to return from California to New York but never really delves deeply into his feelings or his relationship with them While it's certainly his right to maintain his privacy and that of his family it does make the food writing sufficiently less p

    kindle à Feeding a Yen Savoring Local Specialties from Kansas City to Cuzco Ö Paperback Ü citybreakscheap Feeding a Yen Savoring Local Specialties from Kansas City to CuzcoI absolutely love food and travel memoirs I read an excellent review of the book and so I started to read it First let me say that the book is a collection of previously published essays Some were brilliant and funny like the chapter on Northern New Mexico cuisine and the chapter on Shipsins in New York But the rest were somewhat uneven There was no attempt to tie the chapters together except for the beginning chapter and the end where Trillin tries to convince his daughter now living in San Francisco to come home to NYC because the food scene is better I wish I had liked this than I did

    kindle à Feeding a Yen Savoring Local Specialties from Kansas City to Cuzco Ö Paperback Ü citybreakscheap Feeding a Yen Savoring Local Specialties from Kansas City to CuzcoFeeding a Yen is strikingly similar in many ways to Jeffrey Steingarten's book The Man Who Ate Everything Yet while Trillin shares Steingarten's obsession in food as well as his humor he lacks Steingarten's meticulousness and focus As such while The Man Who Ate Everything provides the reader with a fair amount of practical knowledge Trillin's book tends to veer of into rambling personal narratives that ultimately have very little to do with the foods in uestion It's humorous at first but somewhat wearing by the end
