KIRKUS REVIEW

.... or how not to travel on an empty stomach, this roving reminiscence of regions, restaurants and their specialties will enable you to go and do likewise whether at home in your own kitchen- or abroad. From the year 1899 when he had his finest meal (ham and eggs) in a frontier cafe in Cheyenne, Duncan Hines went on to add some 3000 odd others first avocationally- then professionally- and this is a revisitation of favorite places along with odds facts about food and its preparation, people, recipes, wines. It will route you from lobsters in Maine to strawberries in Louisiana, through the schnitzel and sauerbraten of the Middlewest, to California's cuisine and the Northwest- and finally to odd spots in Europe. Its a friendly tour- and it's highspots can not only be remembered but reproduced at home.
