Publisher's Summary

Since its earliest days, The New Yorker has been a tastemaker: literally. As the home of A. J. Liebling, Joseph Wechsberg, and M. F. K. Fisher, who practically invented American food writing, the magazine established a tradition that is carried forward today by irrepressible literary gastronomes, including Calvin Trillin, Bill Buford, Adam Gopnik, Jane Kramer, and Anthony Bourdain. Now, in this indispensable collection, The New Yorker dishes up a feast of delicious writing on food and drink. Whether you're in the mood for snacking on humor pieces or for savoring classic profiles of great chefs and great eaters, these offerings, from every age of The New Yorker's fabled 80-year history, are sure to satisfy every taste. There are memoirs, short stories, tell-alls, and poems: ranging in tone from sweet to sour and in subject from soup to nuts.
Selected from the magazine's plentiful larder, Secret Ingredients celebrates all forms of gustatory delight.

Personal disappointment !

Completely disapointed! I thought I would listen to scientific discussions of the 'hidden/secret' hazards of secret food additives and ingredients but to find different discussion.. I can not comment further as I did not listen to more than 15-20 min.. My above rating (the median chosen; so to have least effect on overall ratings) was made just to allow me to access writting these comments..
