Food: an Anthology

Food: an Anthology

E-mail

"You are what you eat" -- like many clichés, this is quite literally true. The stuff we ingest into our bodies becomes the very stuff of our bones and blood -- even, say our sages, of our souls.

In this collection of thirty articles, essays and stories, we look at the chemistry and character, cosmology and morality, wonder and whimsy, timbre and texture, cunning and comedy, labor and love, guilt and desire, politics and economics, history and future, the Talmud and the Kabbalah of food. Bon appetit!
