Eating Mudcrabs in Khandahar

There is a recipe for food writing. Take an unfamiliar food, place, or situation; add mild misunderstandings and good sportsmanship; stir until good will results. The essays in this book don’t use that recipe, as this review in CHoWline notes, they are about cooking, eating, and surviving.

And as always, I will plump for CHoW. Our December speaker is noted academic Barbara Haber and it’s holiday time–the meeting snacks will be great. Consider joining us, in person or via our emailed newsletter!
