I enjoyed How to Eat a Small Country quite a bit. I liked Amy's voice and found her to be a sympathetic narrator. While a good part of the book is centered around her family, the majority of it concentrates on food. I really appreciated that the author was able to focus on the history of food traditions and preparations, and their decline, while maintaining an educational, but not preachy, tone. The antics of her two children are also quite enjoyable to read about. Viewing new food experiences through a child's perspective was interesting as it made me question my own perceptions more.
