    Jim Harrison's legendary gourmandise is on full display in A Really Big Lunch. From the titular New Yorker piece about a French lunch that went to 37 courses to pieces from Brick, Playboy, Kermit Lynch's newsletter, and others; from the relationship between hunter and prey to the obscure language of wine reviews, A Really Big Lunch is shot through with Harrison's pointed aperçus and keen delight in the pleasures of the senses. And between the lines, the pieces give glimpses of Harrison's life.

David Kamp, author of The United States of Arugula: How we Became a Gourmet Nation, is joined by a panel of connoisseurs to explain the American food revolution. Mario Batali is the star of the Food Network's Molto Mario and one of the Iron Chefs on Iron Chef America.
