Feeding a Yen: Savoring Local Specialties, from Kansas City to Cuzco

Calvin Trillin

Publisher: Random House TradeFormat: Paperback

Calvin Trillin has never been a champion of the “continental cuisine” palaces he used to refer to as La Maison de la Casa House. What he treasures is the superb local specialty. And he will go anywhere to find one. As it happens, some of his favorite dishes can be found only in their place of origin. Join Trillin on his charming, funny culinary adventures as he samples fried marlin in Barbados and the barbecue of his boyhood in Kansas City. Travel alongside as he hunts for the authentic fish taco, and participates in a “boudin blitzkrieg” in the part of Louisiana where people are accustomed to buying these spicy sausages and polishing them off in the parking lot. ("Cajun boudin not only doesn't get outside the state, it usually doesn't even get home.") In New York, Trillin even tries to use a glorious local specialty, the bagel, to lure his daughters back from California. Feeding a Yen is a delightful reminder of why “New York” magazine called Calvin Trillin “our funniest food writer.”
