At a time when American appetites were moving toward convenience and TV dinners and all fine restaurants served French food (in his opinion not very good French food), Craig Claiborne took over the food and restaurant section of the New York Times, changed the art of food writing, and introduced his readers to the excitement of world cuisines and exotic ingredients. 

Thank you Mr. Claiborne! 


 We’ll gather at the home of one of our readers on November 15th at 3pm to talk about the book and share our own culinary creations inspired by the reading.


Please sign up now, so we know you're reading with us, or for more information on our group, send an email to info@slowfoodsouthernaz.org, with “Reading at the Table” in the subject line.
