Eating: A memoir

Eating: A memoir

Jason Epstein


Jason Epstein, the mythical editor and writer of Norman Mailer, Vladimir Nabokov, Gore Vidal, and E. L. Doctorow, between many different distinct writers, and the editor of such nice cooks and bakers as Alice Waters, Wolfgang Puck, and Maida Heatter, takes us on a culinary travel via his eventful existence, starting together with his youth summers in Maine, the place his choice to enhance upon his grandmother’s poultry pot pie resulted in a life-time on the stove.

From the nice eating places of postwar Paris to the slender streets of latest York’s Chinatown at the present time; from a brand new Year’s dinner aboard the outdated Ile de France with Buster Keaton to a night at New York’s glamorous “21” eating place with the scary Roy Cohn; from chinese language omelettes with the good Jane Jacobs on the fringe of the Arctic Ocean to a lobster dinner with the Mailers on Cape Cod, in addition to a caution to envision the chair prior to you sit to dinner with W. H. Auden, this scrumptious ebook celebrates a life of excitement in cooking and consuming well.

The writer is of the same opinion with the Greek thinker Heraclitus so you might by no means step within the related river two times, that each act is exclusive and so is each dish. In Jason Epstein’s palms, instead of being awarded within the traditional inflexible formulation, recipes spread as tales that he might inform a pal in stove-side conversation. And as Epstein demonstrates his own touches in placing a dish jointly, he evokes his readers to be creative.

A wealthy and provocative e-book, Eating will whet the appetites of all who love solid nutrition and pleasant corporation.
