(The) Edible Tao: Munching My Way Toward Enlightenment


by Ruth Pennington Paget
Humorous previously published food memoirs and new essays make up The Edible Tao, a work that honors the role of women in transmitting culture through food.

Ruth Pennington Paget - a freelance food writer living in Monterey, California - began her gastronomic adventures when her mother's favorite thing to make for dinner was reservations Ruth learned to cook in Europe and Asia and has traveled extensively via her cooking of ethnic cuisines.

This book of short independent stories is very easy to read. The pages are turned fast. It is very entertaining and the reader learns a few things about gastronomy and culture in different countries such as France, Marrocco, Italy, Japan, the US ... An awesome book!!
A reader from Monterey, California

The Edible Tao reads like a funny, sophisticated novel. It traces the author's upwards and outwards mobility as she travels from Middle America to Asia and to Europe. As an open-minded over achiever, she manages to adapt to many different lifestyles with brio, using food as a vector for cross-cultural understanding. Even if all you ever make for dinner is reservations, you will love this book!
Marsha Bindel from France

"The Edible Tao" by Ruth Paget is a fun, fascinating look at diverse cultures and cuisines. Each chapter feels like a memorable conversation with an old friend. The author shares her experiences and insights with humor and passionate energy, disclosing nuggets of wisdom along the way.
