A piece of light indulgence rather like a tasty snack that whets the appetite for more. This collection is described as a "34-course banquet of original stories" and there's definitely all the variety of a banquet. The consistent theme is food and travel, those subjects of perennial appeal. All the stories are well written and bear evidence of each author's passion for his or her subject. Interesting to read those by well known Australian foodies, Neil Perry and Curtis Stone. If you love food, travel and a diverting, entertaining read, this one's for you. ( )

A Fork in the Road is a play on words as the stories are not only about food around the world but also about transformative moments in people's lives - excellent selection of short pieces ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Join us at the table for this 34-course banquet of original stories from food-obsessed writers and chefs sharing their life-changing food experiences. The dubious joy of a Twinkie, the hunger-sauced rhapsody of fish heads, the grand celebration of an Indian wedding feast; the things we eat and the people we eat with remain powerful signposts in our memories, long after the plates have been cleared. Tuck in, and bon appetit! Featuring tales from: James Oseland, Giles Coren, Curtis Stone, Annabel Langbein, Neil Perry, Tamasin Day-Lewis, Jay Rayner, Madhur Jaffrey, Michael Pollan, Francine Prose and more.… (more)
