Eating With the Pilgrims and Other Pieces, Paperback

Eating With the Pilgrims and Other Pieces Paperback


Acclaimed "New Yorker" journalist, novelist and poet, Calvin Trillin is also America's funniest and best-loved writer about food.

This selection of some of his wittiest articles sees him stalking a peripatetic Chinese chef, campaigning to have the national Thanksgiving dish changed to Spaghetti Carbonara and sampling the legendary Louisiana boudin sausage - to be consumed preferably 'while leaning against a pickup'.

Eschewing fancy restaurants in favour of street food and neighbourhood joints, Trillin's writing is a hymn of praise to the Buffalo chicken wing, the deep-fried wonton, the New York bagel and the brilliant, inimitable melting-pot that is US cuisine.
