    1. I was surprised to read several reviews where people said they would not want to encounter Opincar in real life I had the complete opposite feeling, and I thought several times how this guy would be a fascinating person to share a meal with I didn t think the writing was disjointed at all either In fact, I thought it was brilliantly connected and structured for this type of book.I was pretty much drawn in by the very simple first paragraph, and really, it gives you a good idea of how this book i [...]



    2. These days everyone is in a mad rush, work, stress, trying to cook dinner in twenty minutes, back to rushing again To me a great bite of food can slow down time forever, it can create a memory, an instant snapshot of a moment in a hectic world, speed is overrated, good food never goes out of style As a food lover, cookbook hoarder and bookworm I was especially excited to read this, when a delicious food memoir lands in my lap I pounce at it, nothing can stop me What a treat to get to read such i [...]


    3. I found Opincar s writing style to be very disjointed and abrasive While the content was brutally honest, I found it mostly uninteresting and vague Opincar is not a man I would ever want to encounter in this lifetime.Putting my dislike for the author s personality aside, this was a fast, easy read and on occasion contained small morsels of fascinating food facts and historyA Well I just found out that this book was a series of essays compiled from the author s San Diego food writing column which [...]


    4. The author is cynical, funny, and clever in his observations about food, cooking, meals with friends, family, and near strangers, as well as travel, dysfunctional relationships, and religion Not the best writer, he apparently didn t have his previously published columns from a free San Diego weekly reedited, and he didn t choose to revise them to make them flow together any better or even to have much internal consistency or connection Entertaining, but not enthralling.


    5. What a story teller I loved this book It hit the spot with laugh out loud moments Each chapter essay is about the experiences he has with people in his life and about a food he associates with these people It could be a simple ingredient, a single dish or an entire meal This author might be up there with JR Moehringer shockers, I know I want .


    6. While often entertaining, the chapters feel very disconnected, lacking any overall structure for the book The descriptions are often lush and wonderful, however there is also a very arrogant tone that is quite distracting The author doesn t seem like a person I d want to encounter in real life, which makes reading his vignettes troublesome at times.


    7. This picaresque, episodic telling of world travels and food experiences was an enjoyable read The opening chapter was unpleasant, describing how the author left his home and his marriage in the middle of the night and affected my reading.


    8. It seemed like Opincar just sifted through a bunch of his writings that had anything to do with food and plopped them in a pile Some stories were semi interesting, but forgettable He s been interesting places and had interesting friends, but he himself didn t seem very.


    9. The book is a collection of several amusing essays that originally appeared in The San Diego Reader Some of the stories had religious features to them but not overly so The book was worth the 50% off cover price that I spent on it I might have been a bit disappointed had I paid full price.



    10. For fellow San Diegans, this is the guy who writes that column in the Reader that reviews different church services.However, this book has nothing to do with church It s mostly about food.
