How to Cook a Tapir: Joan Fry’s Belize memoir out next month

fry2.jpgI love a good travel memoir, better yet, a culinary travel memoir. So I can’t wait to read How to Cook a Tapir: A Memoir of Belize, by Joan Fry, being released in April. From the book’s publisher: “This is the funny, heartfelt, and provocative story of how Fry painstakingly baked and boiled her way up the food chain … Fry’s efforts to win over her neighbors and hair-pulling students offers a rare and insightful picture of the Kekchi Maya of Belize, even as this unique culture was disappearing before her eyes.”Pre-order Tapir on Amazon
