This anthology satiates our hunger for diverse stories.
BEYOND THE FOOD COURT was born not only as a look beyond the standard kitschy food offerings of the North American food court. It also aims to deepen the idea of diversity both culinary and literary. Food is a universal language, and the authors behind this anthology have studied their own hungers, to paraphrase American food writer M.F.K. Fisher. Their vivid re-telling of past culinary experiences bears little resemblance to the—now more than ever—sanitized version of the food court. It becomes a collective exercise of remembering and creating new memories as your eyes settle on the words masgouf, asado, Injera, or ajiaco. Both food and speech are experienced in the mouth.
