What do you hunger for?
How appetizing does a feast of fly larvae sound? In “Hunger and Thirst,” a new anthology, Northwest writers share stories of food that nourish much more than your stomach. Chicken soup that both divides and heals a relationship between mother and daughter. An aching heart soothed by a new spoon and rice pudding. A family that expresses their togetherness through shortbread and whiskey.
What are your stories of food - and love, misery, adventure or peril?
