A Moveable Feast: Life-Changing Food Adventures Around the World

If summer has you stretched in a multitude of directions and reading time is in short supply, A Moveable Feast: Life-Changing Food Adventures Around The World, edited by Don George, offers 38 short chapters jam-packed with fabulous food and memories from chefs, travel writers, and a generous sampling of food editors and critics.

Be the fly on the wall as Australian food journalist Matt Preston dines at El Bulli - ranked number one on lists of the world’s best restaurants. (Culinary tidbits - reservations for the year are taken only during 3 days in October. The restaurant, located near a non-descript seaside town three hours from Barcelona receives more than a million requests for 8000 seats. From pre-dinner snacks through desserts, there are 45 chefs in this kitchen.

After a journey with travel writer and photographer Amanda Jones in southern Ethiopia you'll never forget her memory of a very special mango, or the power of a simple glass of orange juice for writer Johanna Gohmann on a significant birthday on a blustery gray day in Venice.

Call A Moveable Feast a menu of literary tapas and graze at your discretion – calorie free!
