The 9th edition of the annual food writing anthology contains writing from established and rising stars, including Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, Madhur Jaffrey and Anthony Bourdain. "Best Food Writing 2008" authoritatively and appealingly assembles the finest culinary prose from the past year's books, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, and Web sites. This anthology features both established food writers and rising stars on everything from celebrated chefs to the travails of the home cook, from erudite culinary history to food-inspired memoirs. By turns opinionated, evocative, nostalgic, sensuous, and just plain funny, it's a tasty sampler platter to dip into time and again, whether you're in the mood for foie gras, or fruit cake.Like previous collections, "Best Food Writing 2008" will include writers such as Anthony Bourdain, Frank Bruni, Bill Buford, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Barbara Kingsolver, Madhur Jaffrey, Jeffrey Steingarten, and many others.
