Read Feeding a Yen Savoring Local Specialties from Kansas City to Cuzco Calvin Trillin ↠ 5 Read Feeding a Yen Savoring Local Specialties from Kansas City to Cuzco Download ß PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ny culinary adventures as he samples fried marlin in Barbados and the barbecue of his boyhood in Kansas City Travel alongside as he hunts for the authentic fish taco and participates in a “boudin blitzkrieg” in the part of Louisiana where people are accustomed to buying these spicy sausages and polishing them off in the parking I 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 personal and thus ultimately forgettableBut as someone who has moved from New York to mid Missouri and not even to Kansas City where at least a variety of great BB would be available I miss the food options that Trillin has so readily at his fingertips I too used to have delivery options than I currently have restaurant options within an hour s drive I admit to a bit of envy at the life reflected in Trillin s ability to gather up a few appropriate friends for a jaunt to South America to look for specific foodsAll that said the book was comforting and entertaining and light Recommended to foodies who have their own memories of fabulous meals eaten
