Calvin Trillin swashbuckles through a meal much like Douglas Fairbanks lit up the Silver Screen in the Silent Movie days of the 1920's. Okay, maybe not my strongest analogy, but Trillin helped pave the way for the passion for food writing and bridged the gap between gastric superstars James Beard and Julia Child and the explosion of cable Television shows glorifying food preparation and the joy of eating today.

Trillin would often right about his trips to oral nirvana and his joy of sharing it with his wife, Alice. He wrote in a witty, urbane and joyous vein that would often leave me laughing out loud at his adventures and observations.

This book is a series of his articles, starting out with a search for the perfect fried chicken, hence the Title. It was published in 1970, perhaps before his real writing really began to portray his passion. Though there are some laugh out loud moments during the reading of these columns, for me, it missed the real spark I have seen in some of his later writings.

Some of it comes with the natural datedness of columns that were written in the 1960's. Speaking of a steak that is overpriced at $6.50, or a dessert that may not have been worth .45. But I suspect I could have forgiven this more had the choice of his columns been more cohesive by the editors of this book.

This will not stop me from perusing further gustatory adventures of Mr. Trillin, but this one left my belly a bit empty.
