Far Flung and Well Fed: The Food Writing of R.W. Apple, Jr. by R.W. Apple, Jr.
(St. Martin’s Press, 2009, 432 pages)

Julia was absolutely right about this book! Read her review here. I had such good time reading it and didn’t want it to end. I, too, marveled at his knowledge of regional and local history and everything that’s food related. Apple writes and describes things so well that I can picture them easily.  I literally drooled over his essays on food from Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. These are the foods I grew up with.  If you are a foodie, you won’t be disappointed with this book.
