From Fairway Market's master buyer and author of the hugely successful Cheese Primer comes a celebration of the store's extravagant food collection and the stories surrounding its culture.

Fairway, a local institution in New York City for more than fifty years, is the busiest food store in the world. There shoppers can find innumerable artisanal food products, which, for three decades, Steven Jenkins has traveled the world to find. With a wonderful narrative and anecdotes from the man who personally brought so many of the world's greatest foods to New York and the United States, readers will become more enthusiastic shoppers and better cooks. Jenkins's longtime associate, Mitchel London, provides recipes that will attract not only Fairway customers but any home cook who has access to great ingredients.

Steven Jenkins' Cheese Primer was the first thing I read when I started as a cheesemonger. The Food Life imparts the same passion and knowledge about the world's great foods.Jenkins is opinionated. His take on food is classically Euro-centric, and uninfluenced by current trends or eat-local style political movements. He sneers at all sorts of things, California in particular. His braggadocio crops up on nearly every page.I really enjoyed this book. It is an honest look at the life of someone who loves food, and has a passion for finding fantastic gustatory memories. I don't always agree with Jenkins, but I like what listening to what he's saying.more
