  • Information


Women's relationships with food are passionate and obsessive, embracing and comforting, complex and frustrating.

This savoury sampling of stories - by some of the best writers in and out of the food and travel fields - journeys to the heart of these age-old relationships, taking readers from the familiar kitchens of contemporary America to the far reaches of the globe.

In France, an over-enthusiastic waitress serves M. F. K. Fisher the lunch of a lifetime to sustain her on a walk to Avallon.

In Tunisia, Ruth Reichi dines at the home of a local, where the meal is eaten with the hands and a dash of sensuality. And in Fiji, where the women are big and beautiful and walk like royalty, Laurie Gough encounters food as a grand and constant celebration.

The lively, literate tone of "Her Fork in the Road" makes it both an enduring read and an ideal companion for the kitchen or the road.
