The next selection for the Slow Food Book Group is American Fried, Calvin Trillin’s first food book, which is now collected with the other two works in The Tummy Trilogy, and available in paperback. Trillin has long written humorously about his travels in search of good food, travels which usually take him far from the fancy restaurants, and more likely into ethnic, neighborhood joints. The book group will meet Thursday, February 18th, 6-8pm. The meeting is free and open to everyone. Usually 8 to 20 people participate in each. We talk about the book in question, which is chosen by the group from amongst books on food politics, farming, memoir, or literature. Conversation frequently moves to what we’re eating or cooking, or what’s going on with food in other ways.
