TRAVELERS' TALES

HER FORK IN THE ROAD:
Women Celebrate Food and Travel

Editor: Lisa Bach

Women's relationship with food is passionate and obsessive, embracing and comforting, complex and frustrating. This savory sampling of stories - by some of the best writers in and out of the food and travel fields - journeys to the heart of this age-old relationship, taking the reader 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 her walk to Avallon. In Tunisia, Ruth Reichl 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.

Authors include: M.F.K. Fisher, Ruth Reichl, Isabel Allende, Laurie Colwin, Frances Mayes, and many more.
