Summer Reading: The Man Who Ate Everything


Jeffrey Steingarten is my absolute favorite food journalist. He was an extremely successful lawyer before he switched careers and found his foodie calling. You may recognize his name from the judging table on Food Network's Iron Chef America, or the glossy pages of Vogue magazine. His witty, engaging articles about everything from the perfect egg to Spanish ham to the production of apple brandy are interesting, informative, and friendly. I hate to admit it, but I look forward to his stories each month more than I do the fashion ads! If you're not an avid Vogue reader, I highly recommend reading his first book, The Man Who Ate Everything, which is a collection of his Vogue essays. His detailed descriptions of food, combined with his actual attempts to create culinary masterpieces in his own kitchen, make for a fun and engaging read.
