This is a thoughtful collection that lives up to its name, both for the quality of the writing and the attention to the trends and priorities of the food world right now: the articles on sustainability question whether local is necessarily better, explore food sources like foraging, and catalog t...

Surprised by how much I enjoyed this compilation. Had read just a few pieces previously but even those were worth revisiting (Saslow on SNAP and J. Kenji López-Alt's best chocolate chip cookies endeavor). Learned, laughed, and maybe even shed a tear. Warning: reading before bed may increase late...

I thought it was well-curated and a delightfully diverse collection. I'll def...

Although I didn't discover Best Food Writing until 2003, once I found it I had to go back and read the...

Not riveting the entire way through, but there was definitely some excellent food writing in here, not to mention a few great recipes. My favorites were:
1) The Science of the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt - Cookies are examined from a scientific point of view, examining what...

1// Learning How to Taste / "The taste of these shrimp changes from day to day, depending on the conditions of the ocean. Eating them is really like tasting the ocean on that day."
2// Tomato Pie / "...and the recipe is smeared but still readable and the tomatoes are so fresh and so red that I swe...
