Description
The daughter of a British Foreign Service officer, Moira Hodgson spent her childhood in many a strange and exotic land. She discovered American food in Saigon, ate wild boar in Berlin, and learned how to prepare potatoes from her eccentric Irish grandmother. Today, Hodgson has a well-deserved reputation as a discerning critic whose columns in the New York Observer were devoured by dedicated food lovers for two decades. A delightful memoir of meals from around the world—complete with recipes—It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time reflects Hodgson’s talent for connecting her love of food and travel with the people and places in her life. Whether she’s dining on Moroccan mechoui, a whole lamb baked for a day over coals, or struggling to entertain in a tiny Greenwich Village apartment, her reminiscences are always a treat.

display_description Hodgson has earned a reputation as a discerning critic and entertaining writer. It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time reflects Hodgson's talent for connecting her love of food with the people and places in her life--from Vietnam to Chiapas, Mexico, from Berlin to Lapland there was always a new dish to taste, a new people to share her travels with. Like Ruth Reichl's bestselling memoirs, it is a glorious celebration of good food and good company.
