Food writing and reading


I remember when a batchmate and I wandered into a book exhibition where everything was remarkably in the range of Rs 99 to Rs 999. We almost went mad (when you are a student, price is your only known variable) running helter-skelter.

It was this place that I encountered ‘food writing’– reading about food for reading and the words and setting and construction and so on and no so much a recipe book, really. And today I came across this piece which says exactly the same. But is it really a new trend? Anthony Bourdain is known for his books and as far as I know not too many of them are recipes.

And on books about writings on food here are two books I am waiting for, hoping they come to India!
