This was a surprisingly good selection of food essays, some from well-known authors (like Ruth Reichl and Rick Bayless) and some from authors previously unknown to me. Almost every essay includes a recipe, and although I wasn't particularly interested in trying those particular recipes, I did pick up a few tips, like brining chicken overnight before frying it. Because the essays are short and completely unconnected, this is a good book for reading when you only have a few minutes here and there. ( )

This series is always a pleasure, but I think the selections in this one were not quite as good as 2004. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 156924345X, Paperback)

Best Food Writing 2005 assembles, for its sixth year, the most exceptional writing from the past year's books, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, and Web sites. Included are the best writers on everything from celebrated chefs to the travails of the home cook, from food sourcing at the greenmarket to equipping one's kitchen, from erudite culinary history to food-inspired memoirs. Like past collections, the 2005 round-up will include pieces from food-writing stars such as Robb Walsh, John Thorne, Calvin Trillin, Amanda Hesser, Ruth Reichl, Colman Andrews, Jason Epstein, and Jeffrey Steingarten. Opinionated, evocative, nostalgic, brash, thought-provoking, and sometimes just plain funny, it's a tasty sampler to dip into time and again, whether you're in the mood for caviar or hot dogs.
