    I was in the States recently and happened to hear a fascinating radio interview with Mark Kurlansky about this book and the America Eats project. The book immediately went on to my “must seek out” list. This review is a great reminder for me to go and do just that, so thanks Caroline – I will be off to Amazon to bag a copy forthwith!

    I must go looking for that interview – hopefully it’s podcastable. It sounded like you were having an amazing time over at the bloggers convention. How are your new knives going for you?!

    Caroline, you can hear that radio interview here: new knives are incredibly sharp – not quite used to them yet 🙂
