A Fork in the Road

A new book of essays about travel and food from Lonely Planet publishers includes well-known voices from the foodie universe like Michael Pollan and Gael Greene, as well as chefs with a passion for travel. Under the careful guidance of James Oseland (editor in chief of Saveur and "Top Chef Masters" judge) the 34 essays that make up "A Fork in the Road" take you from an ill-fated, Twinkie-eating expedition to a run-in with a naked waitress. "There's something about the otherness of food experiences that really can just get inside you so, so deeply, so profoundly," says Oseland (pictured). You can hear Leonard Lopate's full interview with Oseland here. — Cerentha Harris
