Over at Serious Eats, I have an essay about what it was like being a picky eater in a country with food shortages, and later getting my comeuppance by having a picky child. I hope you enjoy it, and that you share it with people who might find themselves in this story.


I teach medieval English at the University of Bonn, and write about literature, food, immigration, and dance.
