Staff Reviews


A celebration of food by 34 writers and chefs recalling favorite meals and the people they dined with. Featuring such authors as Madhur Jaffrey and Frances Mayes, this book is about eating everything - from a feast at an Indian wedding to a Twinkie. — Sarah Knight

If I could, I’d eat my way around the world like a Mrs. PacMan. But, since I can’t, I’ll settle for reading satiating tales like these. Pick this up if you’re two first loves are travel and food. — Bonnie Winchester

The perfect gift for the person in your life who loves all of those Food Network / Travel Channel Shows!

— Jess Elder

Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher

A Fork in the Road: Tales of Food, Pleasure and Discovery on the Road

2014 James Beard Award Nominee and 2014 Society of Travel Writers Foundation Thomas Lowell Travel Journalism Bronze Award Winner for Travel Book

Join us at the table for this 34-course banquet of original stories from food-obsessed writers and chefs sharing their life-changing food experiences.

The dubious joy of a Twinkie, the hunger-sauced rhapsody of fish heads, the grand celebration of an Indian wedding feast; the things we eat and the people we eat with remain powerful signposts in our memories, long after the plates have been cleared. Tuck in, and bon appetit!
