Description:

For information on the author Ruth Reichl click here.

The writers showcased in this volume share their memories of exquisite meals and experiences on far-flung locales. Featured are essays such as M.F.K. Fisher's marvelous Three Swiss Inns, about three exceptional restaurants she encountered while traveling through Switzerland. In the most out of the way gasthaus, she finds trout swimming in a seemingly decorative tank. But then, in the flash of an eye, the fish is scooped up in a net and carted off to the kitchen, to appear moments later cooked to such pristine lightness, such tender perfection, that one could never hope to duplicate it. Ruth Harkness' In a Tibetan Lamasery is the story of her travels as a single woman exploring Tibet during the war in China. She describes her crumbling accommodations, the unusual animals caught by hunters, and the estimated $10,000 worth of rare pheasants she ate during one winter.

Sure to become a classic, Endless Feasts is comprised of beautifully rendered stories and delightful food in the most interesting and unlikely places.
