Women's relationships with food are 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 these age-old relationships, taking readers 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 a 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.
