The Gastronomica Reader

The Gastronomica Reader

by Darra Goldstein (Editor)

  • FOOD
  • 2010
  • HARD COVER
  • 376 PAGES

Designed both to entertain and to provoke, The Gastronomica Reader offers a sumptuous sampling from the journal's pages -- including essays, poetry, interviews, memoirs, and an outstanding selection of the artwork that has made the quarterly so distinctive. In words and images, it takes us around the globe, through time, and into a dazzling array of cultures, investigating topics from early hominid cooking to Third Reich caterers to the Shiite clergy under Ayatollah Khomeini who deemed Iranian caviar fit for consumption under Islamic law. Darra Goldstein is founder and editor in chief of the journal.  (REF31, $41.95)
