SERENDIPITY From Truffles and Champagne to Corn Flakes and Coffee: Stories of Accidental Success

by | Read by L.J. Ganser

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

L.J. Ganser maximizes the writer's humor in this meditation on the accidental discovery of 50 modern food favorites. He captures Farinetti's fascination with the discovery of everything from anchovies to soda. Listeners who consider themselves foodies will be delighted with this volume because of how the origins of common food items, like brownies, are revealed. Ganser is the perfect narrator for this volume because he makes the detailed chapters engaging by delivering them at an energetic pace. He also makes the many interviews scattered throughout the chapters interesting and easy to understand by creating a recognizable persona for the author that listeners can keep up with.
