The celebrated journalist, producer, and bestselling author takes us on a culinary journey from Italy to Afghanistan, from Mexico to Massachusetts, a memoir of travel, food, and personal (mis)adventure. In Vietnam, preconceptions collide with the soup; in France, lust flares with the pâté and dies with the dessert; in Bolivia, a very young missionary finds her food flavored with hypocrisy; while at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, an older woman discovers gorp is good, fear is your friend, and Thai chicken tastes best when you're soaked by rain and the Colorado River.
