Mark Kurlansky is truly a renaissance man, but it is his writing and his food writing that have resonated with me. Mark shares that he was an adventurous eater as a kid - a true omnivore and became keenly interested in food writing when he worked with Waverley Root in Paris at the International Herald Tribune. Food writing could be literary, witty, historical and more. Mark has proven that food writing is all of those and more!! I highly recommend his books Cod, Salt: A World History , The Food of a Younger Land, and his latest book, Edible Stories. All are great reads. Mark was also a wonderful radio guest. Thank you Mark!!
