2.11 Best Food Writing 2001 edited by Holly Hughes

This was really hit or miss. The first half of it was mostly junk. Some of the essays were written so poorly, I was appalled that they could be considered the best of anything. When I was mentioning it to the boy, he said that this means it will be that much easier to enter into the food writing biz myself if those were examples of my competitors. It picked up by the end though. I genuinely enjoyed the last two sections, which were less about reporting food news and more about the authors' relationships with food. I'm beginning to OD on the food writing, so no more for a while.
