Cute overview but nothing special
Fries!: An Illustrated Guide to the Worl... Fries!: An Illustrated Guide to the World's Favorite Food - Blake Lingle

Another entry in the microhistories of foods, this time about fries. I was very pleased to find that this book is actually about fries vs. it being tangentially related like another book I read. This small book talks about what fries are, how they came to be, what are the different types/styles, how they are eaten (as a side, as a compliment to the main dish, etc.). There you have it. Fries.

 

There's not much more to say to it. I was surprised to see how small the book is: a book like this could have very easily been a coffee table style book (it has some very nice pictures) but it's actually somewhat comparable to a smaller tablet. But I suppose that fits. The author is clearly very enthusiastic about the subject but the book itself is just eh. There are some nice bits of history and interesting fun trivia factoids and the author's writing style is chatty and easy-going. 

 

But it's not really a history book, nor is it a recipe-filled cookbook. As a fun, light read I enjoyed it but I'm not sure who its for since it's not really big enough for display and it's not a cookbook either. I suppose if you're a foodie or just interested in a story like this it might be a good pickup.

 

I got it at a discount but I wish it had been available at my library instead. Wouldn't really go out of your way to find it unless you need it as a source of you REALLY adore fries.

Finally having a bit of down time after some exhausting days hiking. Haven't seen any TV and not even had time to do any reading, but the amazing scenery and wildlife I've seen, kind of makes up for it.

Tomorrow we're heading for Capitol Reef, and after that it's Arches and Canyonland before we head to Salt Lake City and then home.

Percy is already at the carriage, his back to the house which allows me an unobserved moment of staring at his arse not that it's particularly noteworthy arse , but its percy's which is what makes it much worth the noting .
