9780241951934: Eating with the Pilgrims and Other Pieces

Acclaimed "New Yorker" journalist, novelist and poet, Calvin Trillin is also America's funniest and best-loved writer about food. This selection of some of his wittiest articles sees him stalking a peripatetic Chinese chef, campaigning to have the national Thanksgiving dish changed to Spaghetti Carbonara and sampling the legendary Louisiana boudin sausage - to be consumed preferably 'while leaning against a pickup'. Eschewing fancy restaurants in favour of street food and neighbourhood joints, Trillin's writing is a hymn of praise to the Buffalo chicken wing, the deep-fried wonton, the New York bagel and the brilliant, inimitable melting-pot that is US cuisine.

About the Author:

Calvin Trillin is an American journalist, humorist and novelist. Born in Missouri, he joined The New Yorker in 1963. His reporting there has concentrated on America, between the coasts. For fifteen years, he produced an article from somewhere in the country every three weeks, on subjects that ranged from the murder of a farmer's wife in Iowa to the author's effort to write the definitive history of a Louisiana restaurant called Didee's "or to eat an awful lot of baked duck and dirty rice trying."
