Food books

The Post has review articles on Food books and Drink books this week. One of the food books, the Devil's Picnic, is so up a couple of reader's alleys. The author travels the globe trying food, drink and drugs that are illegal or taboo. He writes about cigars, absinthe, cheese, coca and chocolate mouse. He tries all of these and then talks about why they are banned or taboo, for good reasons or bad and then talks about ways in which these things might be made more or less available. Looks pretty good.
