Tucker Shaw, Everything I Ate: A Year in the Life of My Mouth

An interview with “Tucker Shaw, food lover, author, Everything I Ate: A Year in the Life of My Mouth: Do you ever walk through the streets of New York and marvel at the seemingly endless rows of restaurants, wondering how many years you’d have to live here to eat at all of them? Well, Tucker Shaw has probably come close, and has chronicled one year of his eating life in Everything I Ate: A Year in the Life of My Mouth (Chronicle Books, 2005), a grandiose, obsessive and utterly addictive photo collection of food, glorious, nonstop food. Shaw photographed every bite, from candy to cereal, steaks to sandwiches, throughout New York and during his travels. The result is a smorgasbord of food that’s impossible to even page through without feeling a rumbling in your stomach. Read it with edibles on hand.”
