"Ever since his first book, Simple Cooking, and its successors, Outlaw Cook, Serious Pig, and Pot on the Fire, John Thorne has been hailed as one of the most provocative, passionate, and accessible food writers at work today. In Mouth Wide Open, his fifth collection, he has prepared a feast for the senses and the intellect, charting a cook's journey from ingredient to dish in essays that delve into the intimate pleasures of pistachios, the Scottish burr of real marmalade, the way the Greeks make a Greek salad, the (hidden) allure of salt anchovies, and the uncharted territory of improvised breakfasts and resolutely idiosyncratic midnight snacks. Most of all, his inimitable warmth, humor, and generosity of spirit inspire us to begin our own journey of discovery in the kitchen and in the age-old comfort and delight of preparing food."--BOOK JACKET.
