Synopsis: Many people admit that they travel, in large part, to eat, to break bread with strangers and leave the table with friends, to discover the world through the medium of cuisine. Here is a collection of stories which further the proposition that humanity is revealed through cuisine is just as surely as it is through any other art or social activity. Notable authors found in the book include P.J. O'Rourke, M.F.K. Fisher, Peter Mayle, Colin Thubron, and Rory Nugent.

From the Publisher: Many people will tell you that they travel, in large part, to eat, to break bread with strangers and leave the table with friends, to discover the world through the medium of cuisine, to deepen their understanding, broaden their horizons, and make their travels the richer. This collection of stories furthers the proposition that humanity is revealed through cuisine just as surely as it is through any other art or social activity. Through the personal experience of the writers, in rollicking adventure, humor, and even pathos, the reader will agree that, as Napoleon said of the army, we travel on our stomachs. Just a few of the many stories and notable authors you'll find in the book: "All Guns, No Butter," by P.J. O'Rourke; "There Was a Train," by M.F.K. Fisher; "Then I Slept," by Colin Thubron; and "Pilgrims All," by Gary Paul Nabhan.
