If you haven’t had the opportunity to read James Lileks, you are in for an extraordinary treat. Possibly the funniest, wittiest writer on food and culture (well, Amy Sedaris is right up there, but she is not for the faint of heart, for sure!). His “Gallery of Regrettable Food” is a hoot! If you grew up eating "back of the box" recipes and being told children were starving in China, so you better eat that boiled broccoli, you'll like Lileks.
I urge you to bookmark his site and check his various and prolific writing, both on his site and elsewhere.
