Eat, Memory (originally published in 2008, and reprinted this year) is a collection of food essays written by modern authors — not just food writers, but novelists and essayists as well. These essays were originally printed in The New York Times Magazine, in a column begun by Amanda Hesser. She wanted to explore the things that food evokes in our memories, the “emotional component of the way we eat.” So her “Eat, Memory” column invited well-known writers to submit essays about key moments in their lives that involved food. As Hesser says, the results were “un-rosy but riveting.” Food is often a key to the most poignant, difficult, and sad moments in our lives, as well as the most joyful.
