John Thorne has a new book out. Mouth Wide Open A Cook and His Appetite
Ever since his first book, /Simple Cooking/, and its acclaimed 
successors, /Outlaw Cook, Serious Pig,/ and /Pot on the Fire,/ John 
Thorne has been hailed as one of the most provocative, passionate, and 
accessible food writers at work today. In /Mouth Wide Open,/ his fifth 
collection, he has prepared a feast for the senses and intellect, 
charting a cook’s journey from ingredient to dish in illuminating essays 
that delve into the intimate pleasures of pistachios, the Scottish burr 
of real marmalade, how the Greeks made a Greek salad, the (hidden) 
allure of salt anchovies, and exploring the uncharted territory of 
improvised breakfasts and resolutely idiosyncratic midnight snacks. Most 
of all, his inimitable warmth, humor, and generosity of spirit inspire 
us to begin our own journey of discovery in the kitchen and in the 
age-old comfort and delight of preparing food.
