As we continue on with our May Foodie Reads Challenge, I picked up How to Eat a Lobster: And Other Edible Enigmas Explained by Ashley Blom.* I followed her when she blogged at Quarter Life (Crisis) Cuisine, then she started the blog Forking Up last year. We travel in some of the same food blogging circles, so when I saw that she had a book coming out, I ordered it. I figured: How can I resist a book written by a gal who posts Bacon Pancakes, Danger Scones, or a Tequila Old Fashioned on her blog?!?
I enjoyed the book. It's cute. It's clearly written. It has beautiful illustrations by Lucy Engleman.
But I will admit that it's definitely not intended for the experienced eater. Most of the "Tricky Techniques" we tackled before the boys were ten years old. Topics include...
How to Eat Noodles. Check. And we even made these noodles!
