BOOKS: The Best American Food Writing 2019 AND The Best American Food Writing 2020

This is a little bit of a different series of posts where I'll share my comments and impressions on culinary books or articles that I might have read and that I find very interesting and useful as part of my journey to continue to learn more about the culinary world.

One of my favorite articles from this book was "Sugartime" by Ruby Tandoh. If you're curious about Kara Walker's sculpture, watch this video that presents "A Subtlety, or the Marvelous Sugar Baby"

 

After finishing up reading this book I found a lot of interesting articles that are usually the beginning thread that takes me to research more on a dish, an ingredient, or a new food trend or story.
One article that stayed in my head for days came from
Being a Venezuelan-Chinese who by life circumstances is now exposed to American-Chinese food, this "dish" — I confess — was a nice surprise when I started to eat American-Chinese food. Honestly, I never questioned if it was Chinese or not, I just ate them and enjoyed them very much! But learning about the origins of "crab rangoon" — or "cheese wonton" as I got to know them — was really fascinating!
