Anything That Moves- Dana Goodyear

I read this book for my awesome book club, The Kitchen Reader, which combines two of my favorite things - reading and food.

This is such a fun, crazy book!  It is filled with wild tales of people eating everything and anything you can possibly imagine.  One of my favorites is in the very beginning of the book.  It's about a Mayan Apocalypse party that was thrown in LA.  Several courses, with beer pairings, and the kicker was that you had to taste before you found out what you were eating.  More than sixty people showed up for this dinner (if I were in the area, I would have definitely been there) and what an experience they had!  I won't spoil it for you but you should definitely check out this book.  Fun for anyone who loves food!


  1. This was a crazy book! Thanks for choosing it; I learned so much from it. That "mystery dinner" sounded so interesting, with the packs of sealed envelopes beside each plate so that afterwards you can find out what you were eating. I haven't finished the whole book yet but hope to, soon.

  2. Even though I am not sure I would necessarily embark on all the adventurous eating that is shared in the book, it was fun and fascinating to read about all these various types of food parties on both sides, the chefs and those who are eating them!
