Whether it’s creative uses of Dungeness crab and geoducks, or the presence of pho joints on every corner, Pacific Northwest food is a mixture of location, access, and culture. According to award-winning food writer Bee Wilson, these factors influence how taste develops. Building on her previous book Consider the Fork, where she traces the history of cooking and eating, Wilson explores the basics. At what age do we start liking vegetables? How do family habits influence taste preference? Why does your location impact food predilection? She’ll have the answers to these and other questions in an exploration of her latest work, First Bite, a “smart and telling journey.”
